KINGMAN - For the second time in a week, a Kingman resident has been arrested for allegedly abusing their significant other's minor child.

Adam Wayne Vandehey, 29, was taken into custody at about 6 p.m. Wednesday after he reportedly admitted to hitting his girlfriend's son with a leather belt. According to Kingman Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Sochocki, the 8-year-old boy suffered "deep bruising around the waist, abdomen and buttocks."

Kingman police detectives contacted Vandehey after a school administrator called to report the suspected abuse.

Vandehey was arrested without incident on a felony charge of child abuse and on a misdemeanor probation violation warrant.

The boy did not require medical attention, said Sochocki.

On Monday, Kingman Police arrested a 23-year-old Kingman woman on a charge of domestic violence by child abuse for allegedly biting her boyfriend's 9-year-old daughter.

In an effort to deter abuse of the comment section, the Kingman Daily Miner has a new policy of blocking comments on certain stories, such as arrests before conviction and stories with sensitive subject matter.
