Man arrested in slapping of infant

A man was arrested Tuesday after he was accused of slapping his infant, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said.

About 1 p.m. Tuesday, deputies went to the 1600 block of McCauley Street in response to a domestic dispute. When they arrived, a 27-year-old woman told them she had seen Alvin Charles Roberson, 35, slap their child in the face, “very hard,” the report said.

When she took the child from Roberson, he grabbed the woman by the hair and pulled out a “chunk,” the report said. She took the child to a neighbor’s house and called police.

The report said deputies also found that Roberson had three outstanding felony warrants. He was arrested on charges of cruelty to children in the first degree and battery.
