COLUMBIA — A Boone County man was arrested Friday in connection with an assault on a 10-year-old boy.

The incident occurred Monday when the boy was punched in the left eye during an argument with his father, Detective Tom O'Sullivan said. The boy had surgery on his left eye and will need further treatment for his injury. O'Sullivan said the boy was out of the hospital and staying with family members.

Sheriff's deputies arrested Christopher Michael Brown, 28, of 6001 N. Creasy Springs Road on suspicion of first-degree assault.

Brown is being held without bond in the Boone County Jail.
