A domestic dispute turned violent Monday night when a child was hurt trying to stop an argument in Nacogdoches.

Shortly after 8 p.m., a woman, who is the complainant, tried to take back her vehicle from a man who had borrowed it. The man became upset after returning the vehicle and confronted the owner.

During the verbal fight, which took place in a trailer park on the 700 block of E Lane Drive, the woman's child attempted to get between the two adults. The man punched and pushed down the 10-year-old.

The woman reported the incident to police and has filed an injury to a child charge, a third degree felony.

The child did not suffer serious injuries.

Officials have not released any names of those involved or if the man has been arrested.
