A Fairmont man has been arrested, over accusations that he abused a 15-month old boy.
21-year-old Aaron Blosser allegedly struck that child's face, and then picked him up by his neck and choked him. Blosser also apparently bit the boy's face, but said it happened while they were playing.
Police say the child had multiple bruises on his face and head. Blosser is being charged with child abuse resulting in injury. His bail is set at $200,000.
