NM man wanted in Ariz. indicted in child beating

LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- A New Mexico man wanted to Arizona has been indicted for breaking the arm of a 2-year-old and beating the toddler's mother.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that a Dona Ana County grand jury Thursday indicted 33-year-old Joshua Brown on charges of intentional child abuse, a first-degree felony, and misdemeanor battery.

According to court documents, Brown originally told the mother that the boy had fallen during a bath last month. But authorities say he refused to go to the doctor's office with the mother because he had warrants.

The mother later told police that Brown had beat her.

Police say Brown had outstanding warrants from Arizona and New Mexico's Catron County on drug and battery charges.

It was not known if he had an attorney.
