A Lincoln man is behind bars for punching an 8-year-old in the back, twice.

Lincoln Police say 21-year-old Trenten Bankhead hit his girlfriend's son as punishment for touching his Christmas present

When authorities were called to the scene near the 100 block of W. Fairfield St., Bankhead had already left.  They later found him near the 2700 block of N. 70th St., but there was a physical struggle and police were forced to use a taser.

Bankhead faces charges of child abuse, resisting arrest and failure to comply.
