NEW ATHENS, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

An Illinois man is charged with felony aggravated battery of a child for spanking his then-girlfriend’s 2-year-old son.

Dylan Wahlman, 20, of New Athens, struck the young boy across the buttocks and leg with an open hand, according to the St. Clair County Circuit Attorney's Office.

New Athen’s Police Chief Leo Simburger said Wahlman is not the child’s biological father, according to the BND.

The boy was treated and released on October 4. Wahlman eventually turned himself in on Friday.
