Lisbon Man Faces Child Abuse Charges

Posted: Updated:

A Lisbon man is accused of physically abusing two children, sending both to hospitals.

State police say 21 year old Devyn Johnston allegedly abused a 3 year old and a 4 year old.

The younger child was sent to University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington, Vermont, to be treated for a broken arm.

The 4 year old was treated for several bruises all over his body at Canton-Potsdam Hospital.

Trooper say their investigation began when they responded to a call of a dispute Friday at a home on Wood Road in the town of Lisbon.

Johnston was charged with two counts of second-degree assault, a felony, and endangering the welfare of a child, which is a misdemeanor.

He was arraigned in Lisbon town court and jailed on $2,000 bail.
