Bloomfield NJ Man Charged with Assault, Accused of Burning Son with Clothing Iron

Bloomfield NJ Child Abuse SuspectA Bloomfield NJ man was arrested after allegedly assaulting his 6-year-old son in Jersey City, New Jersey.

According to police, the suspect used a clothing iron to burn the victim’s face. The suspect allegedly did this on two occasions.

The victim’s school contacted authorities with New Jersey Child Protection and Permanency (CPP) after learning of injuries to the boy. The CPP investigated the case and then contacted the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit.

The prosecutor’s office looked into the allegations and determined that the suspect had burned his son on the face with an iron two times. According to prosecutors, the victim had to be treated for first degree burns and second degree burns as a result of the incidents.

The suspect later surrendered at the Special Victims Unit headquarters in Jersey City, NJ.

The suspect was charged with aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a child, and child abuse.

If the suspect is convicted on the aggravated assault charges, he could be subject to significant penalties. That’s because this kind of offense is classified as a second degree felony under N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1b. A conviction for second degree aggravated assault is punishable by a sentence of 5–10 years in New Jersey State Prison.

The suspect was initially taken to the Hudson County Jail in Kearny NJ in lieu of $50,000 bail. He was later released from custody after posting bail.
