Police: Man Behind Bars After Hitting Child

Wichita Falls, Texas - A man is behind bars after police say he hit a young child, though not without the child’s mother getting a piece of him herself.
Police say around 9:10 p.m. on Thursday night Officers responded to a call, where a child told the officers that 35-year-old Stephen Turk had hit them. Officers saw visible marks on the child’s face, which supported the child’s statement.
However, the mother of the child, who was in fear of the child’s life, bit Turk’s right ear.
Turk was later transported to the hospital, and he was later arrested.
Turk has been charged with Injury to a Child.
