A 6-year-old boy who called another child “an unacceptable name’’ at a day-care center in Mesa was punched in the chest by the mother’s boyfriend, according to a court document.
The attack on the boy was recorded on a videotape at the center, in the 800 block of South Alma School Road, on Friday, according to a court document.
“On the video the child flies approximately four feet in the air and lands directly on his buttocks and slides up to wall,’’ the court document said.
The document said the little boy started crying and also urinated on himself after the attack.
On Monday, police arrested Javier Dwayne Rouse, 33, on suspicion of aggravated assault on a vulnerable child, the document said.
Rouse admitted to police that he punched the boy, but said “he didn’t think he punched the child hard like an adult would be hit,’’ the report said.
