A Lubbock dentist is facing felony charges of injury to a child.
This week, the Lubbock district attorney's office filed charges against Daniel Chaparro, III.
According to police reports, Chaparro allegedly struck his 7-year-old son with the blade of a knife. The child's mother reported the incident several days later and no cut or marks were visible at that time.
Chaparro was taken into custody Thursday afternoon and is scheduled to be arraigned some time Thursday evening.
