A New Hampshire man has been arrested on assault charges after police say he physically abused a young child and injured him.
Bradley Mobbs, 27, of Concord, was arrested Tuesday afternoon in Portsmouth. He faces three felony counts of second degree assault and a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child.
The mother of a boy under 13 reported to Concord police earlier Tuesday that her child had complained of injuries. Police launched an investigation and an arrest warrant was issued for Mobbs, the mother's live-in boyfriend.
