Man Wanted for Child Abuse Caught after Crash

Joseph Jones Jr., 28, was wanted since September.

A man who was wanted by Cranston Police for allegedly breaking the leg of his girlfriend's 7-year-old son was caught by police after a car crash in Providence.

Joseph Jones Jr., 28, of 6 Whipple Ave., was picked up on a warrant by Providence Police on Friday after a car crash, the Providence Journal reported.

Jones is accused of breaking the leg of the boy when he kicked him and broke his femur. The incident occurred when Jones was reportedly disciplining the boy and put him in "time out."

The boy's father reported the injury to police after his son was returned to him by his mother, the Journal reported, and couldn't walk on his swollen leg. The boy's mother didn't call police.

Providence Police took Jones into custody when they discovered Cranston Police had a warrant out for his arrest. Jones reportedly attempted to flee the scene of the accident before he was caught.

Accident? Why on earth are you allowing some man to put his hand on your child? He didn't give him a little tap on his leg to cause a break. You need to wake up girl and take care of your kid. He will be there long after all of your "boyfriends".
