EDWARDSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Police in northeastern Pennsylvania say a 51-year-old man beat one boy and burned his brother out of anger the children weren’t eating quickly enough.

The Wilkes-Barre Times Leader said (https://bit.ly/1UF5JKj ) Richard Zang of Edwardsville was charged Thursday after a child welfare worker alerted police about the alleged abuse.

Police say a 10-year-old boy told them Zang slapped both of his ears on Friday night, turning them black and blue. He’ll require additional medical treatment.

Investigators say the boy’s 12-year-old brother told them Zang made him stand so long he urinated in his pants, and then put a hot piece of bread in the boy’s pants. They say that caused a burn that’s left a scar.

Zang is jailed on assault and other charges. Court records don’t list a defense attorney.
