Police Arrest Sand Springs Man after Alleged Child Abuse

A 37-year-old Sand Springs man was arrested at 6:15 a.m. Saturday morning on child abuse complaints.

The police report states the suspect, Robert Wixon, Jr., allegedly assaulted his 15-year-old son because his son reportedly tried to hide Wixon's alcohol.

Fresh scratch marks could be found on the son's neck after the father pushed him to the ground and fought him, the report states.

The officer on scene decided to place the suspect under arrest for the injuries on the son's neck, to which Wixon reportedly resisted.

The suspect also reportedly punched a 14-year-old girl in the face, leaving visible swelling. The officer photographed the wounds along with blood found on the floor of the bedroom.

Wixon was booked on complaints of child abuse for assaulting and wounding two minors under the age of 18.
