ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - An Albuquerque father is facing serious charges after a school nurse discovered his son had a broken arm.
Allen Wilson faced a judge Saturday in his first court appearance on a child abuse charge.
According to a criminal complaint Wilson grabbed his 7-year-old son by his left arm, yanking him off the ground and dropping him onto a couch after the boy had run outside.
This week the boy told a school nurse his arm was hurting.
She then told the boy's grandmother to take him to the hospital where medical staff discovered he had a fractured left arm.
On Saturday a Metropolitan Court Judge set Wilson's bond at $15,000 and ordered him to have no contact with the child until further notice.
The complaint alleges Wilson admitted to grabbing his son's arm but said it was not that hard. He then added the boy also fell after that incident.
The state Children, Youth and Families Department was also called in on the case.
