A Barrington woman called 911 after witnessing a disturbing scene on Saturday, July 13.
The woman was standing near Washington Road at about 4:30 p.m. when she allegedly saw a full-grown man beating his young son inside a vehicle.
The woman called 911 and told the dispatcher that she had seen the young blonde-haired boy walking along the road when a green car pulled up next to him. She said a man was yelling at the child to get into the car. When the boy entered the car, the man allegedly began hitting the child.
Police responded to the scene, but could not locate the individual. They later checked the residence of the suspect, but no one was home. Later in the day, police did contact the man in question who reportedly denied hitting the child.
No one was charged.
