MOSS BLUFF, LA (KPLC) -

A 54-year-old Moss Bluff man has been arrested on two counts of cruelty to a juvenile, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Edward Dewayne Brown was arrested Sunday and accused of physically abusing two young family members, a 6-year-old and a 7-year-old.

"Deputies discovered Brown struck the two children several times with a belt, even striking one while he was on the ground, causing welts and bruises," Myers said Wednesday in a news release. "When questioned by detectives, Brown confirmed the allegations."

Brown was released after posting a $2,000 bond set by Judge Richard Wilson.
