WACO -- A Waco man is behind bars after police say he severely beat a woman and a child.

Police say 28-year-old Melvin Scott got into an argument with the woman, hit her several times, threw her to the ground and kicked and stomped on her. Then he reportedly hit her 3-year-old child with a belt.

Police found him at a home in the 800 block of Dearborn. Police believed he could've been armed so they released a K-9 into the home when he refused to come out.

He is now in McLennan County Jail.
