Man accused of malicious wounding of boy

Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Toms Brook man on Sept. 30 and charged him with malicious bodily injury, child abuse and child endangerment.

Maj. Scott Proctor, of the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office, said the incident left the victim, a 7-year-old boy from Woodstock, with severe bruising on the back and buttocks area.

The defendant, Corey Laine Chapman Sr., 30, of 11 Round Hill Park, hit the victim with a wooden board, Proctor said.

Proctor said the alleged offense was committed on Sept. 27 “in the Toms Brook area.”

The Department of Social Services reported the incident to the Sheriff’s Office on Sept. 29, Proctor said.

Proctor said deputies arrested Chapman without incident on Sept. 30. The defendant was taken to the Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail and later released on $5,000 secured bond.

Chapman is scheduled to appear at 9 a.m. Thursday in Shenandoah County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.

Proctor said he had no information on the severity of the victim’s injuries or the nature of any medical treatment.
