A Rock Hill man was arrested Thursday after police say he hit his teenage son 15 times with a belt.
Jerroa Graham, 36, is charged with cruelty to children, according to a Rock Hill Police report.
He’s accused of striking his 15-year-old son in the ribs and hitting him on the buttocks 15 times with a belt at Chestnut Street house, the report states.
The incident reportedly stemmed from the boy telling a school official about prior abuse.
The teenager was taken to emergency protective custody. Graham is currently held at the Rock Hill Jail on a $1,000 bond.
