Man accused of assaulting foster child

A man is accused of assaulting his foster child.

Christopher Spann was arrested after his 11-year-old son showed up at an after school program at the Homewood Salvation Army with bruises on his face and body, police said.

“Apparently the incident began last night because he didn’t do his homework over the period of a couple hours," said Jason Lando of Pittsburgh police.

Spann is charged with aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a child and reckless endangerment.

The boy has been put in protective custody.
