MAN ACCUSED OF BEATING GIRL WITH LEATHER BELT

Police arrested a 91st Street man Saturday morning on allegations of using a leather belt to discipline his girlfriend's 9-year-old daughter.

The girl had welts on her midsection where she had been hit with the belt, reputedly for questioning whether she needed to wash all the dishes, police said.

Salvatore Zabaldo III, 42, was charged with third-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
