GRANGER, Ind. (AP) - A northern Indiana man faces battery and intimidation charges for allegedly attacking a 4-year-old boy who was shopping at a grocery store with his father.

Twenty-five-year-old Eric Parks was arrested following Tuesday’s attack at a Martin’s Super Market in Granger.

Parks, who faces felony charges of battery and intimidation of law enforcement, remained jailed Saturday on a $1 million bond at the St. Joseph County Jail in South Bend.

Police say Parks was quickly subdued by store security and management after Tuesday’s attack on the boy. The attack was witnessed by the youngster’s brother and dozens of other shoppers.

The boy’s father tells WSBT-TV (https://bit.ly/1kMicrs ) his son was awake and alert after the attack, but shaken. He says the youngster has some bruising around his forehead, face and nose.
