Henry Ronald Davidson, 28 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he injured the mother of his child during a dispute at their home on Etowah Terrace.

Reports said that Donaldson placed the woman’s arm behind her back and refused to let her go.  When the victim finally pulled away, she reportedly suffered scratches to her arm.

The incident occurred in front of a 5 year-old child.

Davidson is charged with battery and cruelty to children in the 3rd degree.
