A Lyons man has been arrested by New York State Police after they say he fractured his child’s leg.
On December 21, State Police arrested Jared A. Deboard, 21, of Lyons for second degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
Police say on December 19, while at his residence and caring for his five-month-old child, Deboard yanked on the child’s leg, causing the child to suffer a fracture to their femur.
