6-Year-Old Child Kicked, Burned, Diapered: Red Deer Man Facing New Charges


RED DEER, Alta. - A central Alberta man accused of assaulting his girlfriend's kids will have a preliminary inquiry later this month on numerous new charges including assault and assault with a weapon.

The 25-year-old, who can't be named to protect the identity of the victims, was supposed to have a trial last November but it was adjourned after his now former girlfriend changed her statement.

In June 2012, a neighbour claims to have witnessed a man kicking a young boy in Glendale and called police.

The six-year-old boy was found wearing a diaper and had burn marks on his arms and injuries to his eye.

The accused had been in custody for over a year but was released Wednesday with numerous conditions.

He is scheduled to be back in court on July 22 for a preliminary hearing on a total of 19 charges.
