A North Platte man is facing a felony charge after he allegedly assaulted a 15-year-old boy.
At around 1:45 p.m. on September 1st, an Officer from the North Platte Police Department responded to the 1000 block of North Walnut on the report of a possible child abuse.
Officers learned there had been a disturbance in the area, followed by a teen leaving the residence with a visible head injury.
The juvenile alleged that 35-year-old Koby Cooper had “ran his head into a wall,” causing the injury.
An Officer later met with the victim and verified that following an argument between him and Cooper, Cooper began pushing him then slammed his head into a wall inside the residence causing abrasions to his head and elbow.
The Officer determined there was probable cause to arrest Cooper and charge him with a felony charge of Cruelty Toward a Child.
Cooper was jailed at the Lincoln County Detention Center.
