BROOKLET, GA (WTOC) -

Bulloch County Sheriff's Office investigators and Division of Family and Child Services workers responded to Stilson Elementary School April 26 for a report of physical child abuse of a 6-year-old male.

According to authorities, the child displayed extensive bruising and marks in a pattern consistent with abuse. The child was placed under the custody of DFACS for his safety.

The child's father, Rodney Christopher Fudge, 25, of Brooklet, was contacted by deputies and arrested. Fudge was transported to the Bulloch County Jail and charged with one count of cruelty to children in the first degree and one count of battery (domestic violence).

Due to the nature of the charges, bond has not been assigned at this time.
