Man Arrested for Assaulting Child

LAKESIDE, Ore. — A Lakeside man is in jail for assaulting a child.

The Coos County Sheriff’s Office arrested 34-year-old Mark Andrew Colton for an incident in October where his child was elbowed in the face while playing football at the city park.

Investigators say Colton returned to the field and demanded to know who hit his son.

A juvenile, who had not been the one who hit his son, spoke. That’s when deputies say Colton struck him in the temple.

The 13-year-old was taken to the hospital and treated for a brain injury and a concussion.

Colton is being held at the Coos County Jail on $25,000 bail.
