Man Charged With Child Abuse Of 4-Year-Old Boy

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man was arrested on child abuse charges after police said he lied about how a 4-year-old boy in his care was seriously hurt.

A police affidavit said the boy's mother came home to find the boy bleeding from his forehead. She told police that 31-year-old Josh Cash was watching the child, and he said the boy fell off the couch.

At the hospital, the 4-year-old told his mom and the nurses that Cash got mad at him and threw him down on the ground where he hit his head on a toy car.

The boy had a one-inch gash on his forehead that required stitches.

Cash was taken into custody Tuesday night and charged with aggravated child abuse.
