Wichita Falls Man Indicted For Injuring A Child

A Wichita Falls man accused of injuring an infant, was indicted.

The Wichita County grand jury indicted Andrew Michael Johnson, 20, on Wednesday for injury to a child / elderly individual / disabled individual.

Johnson was arrested after Wichita Falls police responded to a family disturbance on Thaten Drive on January 14th.

The mother of the 1-year-old claimed Johnson, her boyfriend, caused bruising to the child's face, head and neck when she left the baby in his care, to go to work.

She said she received text messages from Johnson, saying he spanked the child and that the one year old fell in the bathtub and hit his head.

She told police she confronted Johnson and he said he disciplined the child for tearing up his diaper.
