BELTON — A Killeen man accused of attacking a 2-year-old child last month was indicted by a Bell County grand jury Wednesday.

The grand jury handed down a felony charge of injury to a child against Clarence Edward Duren II, 24.

According to an arrest affidavit, witnesses reported seeing Duren kick the child, causing her to fall down. After the alleged attack, the girl’s father went after Duren with a metal pole.

When Killeen police responded to the call, they saw Duren, the girl’s father and a third individual fighting in the street.

The girl’s father complied with the officer’s orders to drop the pole and get on the ground, but Duren grabbed the pole and began striking the man with it.

Duren was subdued with a Taser after he refused to comply with the officer’s orders, the affidavit stated. Duren is in Bell County Jail on $106,000 bond.
