An East Naples man was arrested Thursday on a warrant for child abuse, according to Collier deputies.

Rubens Casseus, 31, is accused of grabbing a child by the neck and pushing her against a wall in mid-January, reports said. The child, who had marks on her arms and legs, also said Casseus hits her with his fists and a cellphone when he gets angry, deputies reported.

Casseus, whose address in East Naples was redacted from reports, is being held at the Naples Jail Center on a $50,000 bond, according to jail records.
