MURPHSYBORO, IL (KFVS) - A Murphysboro man was arrested for allegedly battering a child.

Murphysboro police say the child's mother called police to a home on the 400 block of Murphy Street.

She told officers that 25-year-old Brian Brown hurt the child Tuesday afternoon.

Brown was not at the home when police arrived, but officers caught up with him about three hours later.

He ran from police, but was arrested after a short foot chase.

Brown faces charges of aggravated battery and resisting/obstructing a peace officer.

Brown was taken to the Jackson County Jail.
