A man and a woman have been arrested for allegedly assaulting a seven-year-old child, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Davon Burton, 26, and Demetries Page, 24, both of Paterson, were arrested on Wednesday and charged with aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a child, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and unlawful possession of a weapon.

Burton and Page allegedly physically assaulted the child on several occasions between September 2020 and September 2021 at their residence in Paterson.

Burton and Page could face decades in prison if convicted on all the charges.
