Headline Goes Here

SAN ANTONIO - A man accused of punching a 7-year-old family member was charged with injury to a child, an arrest affidavit said.

An arrest affidavit said the victim made the outcry after a teacher noticed his black eye. The boy said Rolf Haugrud, 57, threw him in a closet and then punched him in the eye because Haugrud thought the boy was playing with his baseball cards.

Haugrud admitted he got angry and hit the child.
