Reportedly, a 48-year-old Calico Rock man was arrested March 6 for allegedly beating a one-year-old boy, according to a press release issued Monday by Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence.
Phillip Thomas Costanza was reportedly babysitting the child while the child’s mother performed errands. Upon her return, the child had significant bruise to both sides of his face, according to Lawrence.
When asked by the mother how the child got the bruises, Costanza reportedly replied he did not know how the child got hurt, according to Lawrence.
Investigators with the sheriff’s office reportedly noted the boy had had imprints of a hand on both sides of his face, Lawrence said in a press release.
Costanza, who recently moved to the area from California, reportedly has an extensive criminal history, according to Lawrence.

Costanza was reportedly arrested on a felony charge of second-degree domestic battery and taken to the Izard County jail where he was held in lieu of a $20,000 bond.
