BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - A Bossier City man is facing child cruelty charges after police say a 3-year-old suffered a severe head injury while in his care.

As a result of their investigation, police arrested 25-year-old Brandon Michael Fox and charged him with second degree cruelty to a juvenile.

Fox was booked into the Bossier City Jail.
