AMARILLO – Amarillo Police arrested 28-year-old Philip David Burnett Tuesday morning after he allegedly injured a child.

Police responded to a call at just after 10 to 47th and S. Bowie on a family fight. 

Police say a family fight occurred and Burnett hit the child in the face. 

Initial information is that the child was drinking from a bowl and the male struck the bowl with his hand.  Injury was minor, described as a contusion in one case and as a laceration and facial swelling in a later report.

Officers booked Burnett into the Randall Co. Jail for injury to a child and for assault w/bodily injury for his assault on the female by pushing and choking her.
