BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - A Beatrice man has been accused of punching one child and tossing another down a flight of stairs.

Beatrice radio station KWBE reports (https://bit.ly/1XsVdmp ) that 36-year-old Christopher Canfield was arrested Monday and faces two counts of child abuse. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment on Canfield’s behalf.

Canfield’s bond was set at $5,000 during Tuesday’s hearing. His next court date is March 29.

Police were called in after a report was made by a school resource officer. The children are ages 5 and 8. Police say one child was being punished for not properly cleaning a kitchen table. Police say the other child was accused by Canfield of stealing change from him.
