AMMAN — Jerash’s public prosecutor on Sunday ordered the arrest of a man who appeared in a video circulated on social media that purportedly showed the man physically and verbally assaulting his eight-year-old nephew.

The Family Protection Department referred the perpetrator to the Jerash prosecutor who then ordered his detention at a correctional and rehabilitation centre for a week, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported, quoting the Public Security Department’s spokesperson as saying.

A medical examination revealed that the child is in good condition, Petra reported on Saturday, adding that the child is now at a social care institution where his case will be studied to ensure that what he faced does not happen again.
