When the boy was interviewed, he was apprehensive and would speak in a whisper, the complaint said. The boy had numerous bruises, red marks and scrapes on his body.
Officers made a request for the boy’s medical records, but they were not available before Beltran was charged, the complaint said.
Beltran remained in jail Friday. He was facing felony charges of second-degree assault and domestic assault by strangulation and a gross misdemeanor charge of malicious punishment of a child.
