Bethel Man Facing Felony Assault Charge

A Bethel man is facing a felony assault charge for allegedly hurting his two-year-old son. Last week, Bethel Police were called to a home early in the morning and arrested 30-year-old Maurice Andrews Senior.

The investigation showed a 2-year-old child had suffered visible facial wounds after reportedly being thrown on the ground and kicked multiple times. The child was treated in Bethel for multiple wounds and a broken clavicle and flown to Anchorage for further testing.

Court documents indicate that Andrews had a strong odor of alcohol.

Andrews is facing a felony assault three charge involving a child under the age of ten. Bail was set at 5,000 dollars. Andrews’ next court appearance is Friday afternoon.
