KIMBALL - A Kimball man was arrested Monday accused of child abuse.

The Kimball Police Department says Garrett Goodwin, of Kimball, was placed in custody after officers investigated a report of a disturbance in the 500 block of S. Walnut Street. 

Few details of the incident have been released by authorities, but community members have rushed to Goodwin's defense.

"Dude loves being a father and he’s a great one too," a person wrote on social media. "He literally changed his whole life for those babies. He puts them before everything. There’s no way he would hurt them in any way."

Kimball Police say suspects are innocent until proven guilty. Goodwin is out on bond. His next court date has not been set.
