LOGAN — A 24-year-old Logan man has been arrested on allegations of physically abusing two young children. Quinton Lopez was booked Thursday night into the Cache County Jail where he is being held on $29,750 bail.

Logan City Police Assistant Chief Jeff Simmons said officers began investigating after receiving a report that Lopez was abusing the kids, ages 3 and 4. The officer responded to the residence and documented what he considered “multiple significant injuries.”

The children reportedly had bruises on the side of their heads. They also had injuries to their ears.

Simmons said officers worked with agents from the Department of Child and Family Services to care for the children.

Lopez was questioned by investigators Thursday afternoon. He reportedly admitted to some of the abuse, claiming he had struck the children with his hands on several occasions.

Lopez is expected to be arraigned in court on formal charges next week.

    The child abusers and pediphiles seem to keep increasing in our area. Jail and rehabilitation isn’t enough. We need real justice for these sickos. Where are the dads? Where are the real men at? We need justice above “justice”. I know I personally am at my breaking point. Our young people deserve better.

      Not just men, women too. But they’re punished even less frequently and severely. Some attention needs to be brought to the problem.

    I agree. The more the population grows the more crime against children we see. Should be punished much more severely. Crimes against innocent children should be life in prison if not death penalty.

    I was just telling my husband that nearly every day seems to be another case. Shame on them! Keep them locked up.
