ANCHORAGE (AP) — A 28-year-old man has been charged with burning his 9-year-old son on the face and inside his mouth with a hot butter knife.

Dennis Wilfredo Moronta was charged with felony assault, according to charging documents.

A family friend reported the boy's injuries to police Monday after seeing the wounds, prosecutors said.

Officers Joshua Nolder and Steven Much knocked on the family's door. The 9-year-old answered and the officers noted a swollen upper lip and a raw wound that extended around part of his left cheek.
