HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – A father is facing child abuse charges after he assaulted his son while using excessive force to give the boy a hair cut.

According to KHOU, 43-year-old Atamvir Singh is being charged with injury to a child after forcefully cutting his 12-year-old son’s hair.

The cut was a point of contention for Singh and his estranged wife, who objected to cutting his hair for religious reasons.

The boy told local authorities that last Thursday, Singh forced the child into cutting his hair by grabbing him by the neck and forcing him to the ground before punching him in the chest and holding him in place.

He then reportedly grabbed a pair of scissors and cut the boy’s hair.

His mother ran to a neighbor to call for help, and when authorities arrived, others reported seeing the boy being held down.

Charges were filed last Friday against Singh.
