SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Police say a Surprise man is in custody for allegedly assaulting a 9-year-old boy.

Surprise police say 36-year-old Jason Overholts was booked into a Maricopa County jail Wednesday night on suspicion of two counts of aggravated assault and one count of disorderly conduct.

They say Overholts allegedly struck a 9-year-old boy in the face.

The assault reportedly did serious damage to the boy’s cheekbone and also caused him to lose several teeth.
