ALEXANDRIA BAY — An Anthony Street man was arrested Wednesday night after he allegedly punched his 7-year-old son in the head three times.

Matthew D. Rogers, 30, of 14 Anthony St., was charged with third-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child, after a Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department investigation.

According to the arrest report, he used a closed fist to punch his son three times, “causing a bruise the size of a penny” to the upper left side of the boy’s head, during an incident March 22 at his home. He was arraigned in Alexandria Bay Village Court and released on his own recognizance.
