HOUSTON -

A father is facing charges after accusations that he beat his son at the boy's middle school.

Christopher Levy has been charged with injury to a child.

Investigators said Levy pulled the boy out of class after a parent-teacher conference at Forest Brook Middle School on Wednesday, then hit him repeatedly.

Quinaya Devaughn said the boy is her cousin and she saw the altercation during lunch time.

“I was in the cafeteria lunch line and it was a whole bunch of commotion, fighting," said Devaughn. "It was over the top. [The boy] just balled up and he was trying to run and he fell and his dad grabbed him and started hitting him."

Houston ISD police officers pulled Levy off his son. Levy was arrested and his son was taken to the hospital.

Levy is being held on a $10,000 bond.

Child Protective Services is also investigating. A spokesperson said Levy does not live in the same home as his son. The boy lives with his mother.
