Man Abused Boy Who Left Door Open in Plymouth: Police

Police arrested a Terryville man who is accused of abusing a child who left a door open last month.

Officers said 27-year-old William Hunt was arrested on Wednesday on child abuse related charges following a Connecticut Department of Children and Families case.

According to a warrant, the victim, who is not related to Hunt, told police that Hunt was upset that he had left his bedroom door open with the air conditioner running while he used the bathroom on September 16.

He said Hunt hit him on the side of the head and pushed him to the floor before he stomped on his back and kicked his side.

Officials said the victim was left with blood in his eye and bruises and scratches on his neck and chest.

Hunt is facing charges including disorderly conduct, assault, strangulation and risk of injury. He was held on a $50,000 bond.
