COTTAGE GROVE, OR (KPTV) -

Officers arrested a man accused of using a match to burn a 4-year-old boy's penis, according to the Cottage Grove Police Department.

Officers followed up on a referral from the Department of Human Services on Thursday.

The child complained to his mother about the pain he was experiencing and said 42-year-old Clent Wayne Wilson had used a match to burn him.

The child's mother took the boy to the hospital for treatment. Police said further investigation, including a medical examination and additional interviews, corroborated the child's allegation.

Wilson was arrested Friday and booked into the Lane County Jail on the charge of third-degree assault.

No other details were released by police regarding the investigation.
