LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

Livingston Police officers arrested a 46-year-old man for injury to a child Thursday after he allegedly assaulted a 10-year-old boy for coming out of his room without permission.

Harvey Locklin, of Livingston, is still being held in the Polk County jail on a third-degree felony charge of injury to a child and a misdemeanor charge of public intoxication. His bail has been set at $10,000 for the injury to a child charge.

According to a press release from the Livingston Police Department, LPD officers were dispatched to a home in the 600 block of Liberty Ave. in reference to an assault of a child at approximately 9:30 p.m. Wednesday. When the officers arrived on the scene, they found Locklin standing in the yard.

During the course of their investigation, they learned that Locklin had allegedly assaulted a 10-year-old boy because the child came out of his room after he had been told not to do so. In addition, Locklin allegedly refused to allow the 10-year-old boy to eat dinner, the affidavit stated.

Locklin was arrested at the scene and transported to the Polk County Jail.

According to the press release, the child suffered non-life threatening injuries. Information from the Livingston Police Department investigation was forwarded to Child Protective Services.
