HAWKEYE (KWWL) -

A Hawkeye man is accused of abusing a child that showed up to school with injuries.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office says they were contacted on Friday after a child showed up to school with what officials call "suspicious injuries." They say he was taken to Palmer Hospital where doctors say he sustained serious injuries, but would recover from them.

Deputies arrested 37-year-old Kenneth John Becker Jr. of Hawkeye. He's charged with child endangerment causing serious injury. He was released after posting a $10,000 cash bond.

The child was removed from the home by the Department of Human Services and was placed with family.
