Dozens see assault on 4-year-old

– A northern Indiana man faces battery and intimidation charges for allegedly attacking a 4-year-old boy who was shopping at a grocery store with his father.

Eric Parks, 25, was arrested after Tuesday’s attack at a Martin’s Super Market in Granger.

Parks, who faces felony charges of battery and intimidation of law enforcement, remained jailed Saturday in lieu of $1 million bail at the St. Joseph County Jail in South Bend.

Police say Parks was quickly subdued by store security and management after the attack on the boy, which was witnessed by the youngster’s brother and dozens of other shoppers.

The boy’s father told WSBT-TV that his son was awake and alert after the attack. He said the youngster has some bruising around his forehead, face and nose.
