DARTMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — A 28-year-old Massachusetts man is accused of assaulting a child he was babysitting.
Police in Dartmouth arrested Richard Pinheiro, of Fall River, after responding to a report of a disturbance at an apartment on Wednesday. A neighbor had called police.
Police say Pinheiro assaulted a 4-year-old child he was babysitting.
The child was treated at St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford and released.
Pinheiro was charged with assault and battery with injury on a child. He is being held without bail.
It’s not immediately clear whether Pinheiro has a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
