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.

    I heard from a neighbor that he treats his son like crap. I hope the boy is ok.

    Whether Koby did this or not, his last name has nothing to do with it. I have known his parents for yrs and think the world of both of them. I feel for them now, and there is no reason to cause them more pain by trashing the whole family!

    Whether he did it or not? WTH did the kid bash his own head into the wall? Big boy needs to take responsibility for his actions, and people need to not stand up for child abusers.

      You need to read the posts more thoroughly…I never said I supported child abuse, I said it has nothing to do with his last name. As he hasn’t been proven guilty yet, there is a presumption of innocence. I don’t know the story, I just know the family name shouldn’t be brought into it.

    This has nothing to do with his last name. Who cares. The fact of the matter is this is not Koby’s first three ring circus. The dude is a piece of trash who treats his own kids like crap. Cant support his kids or himself and mooches off of his parents. The fact is he got into an altercation with a 15 year old shows his immaturity and total lack of self control.
