Elkhart Boy In Protective Custody

A nine-year-old Elkhart boy is in protective custody after his mother allegedly beat him in front of his class.

Police say the mother was called to Hawthorne Elementary for a disciplinary problem.

When she arrived, police say she slapped the boy and pounded his head repeatedly into a brick wall.

She then took him inside his classroom and invited students to make fun of him.

The boy has been placed in a foster home.

No charges have been filed at this point.
