Moorhead, Minn. (WDAY TV) - A Moorhead man is facing charges, accused of punching a 10-year-old boy in the face.

35-year-old Aaron Aberle is charged with the malicious punishment of a child for allegedly injuring the boy who is his girlfriend's son. The boy called police to his home on December 4th. At the time, police noted the boy didn't look injured.

Three day later they were notified the child had come to school with a bruised cheek and eye, saying Aberle had punched him again. Both Aberle and the boy's mother deny the claims.
