The Daily News reports (http://nydn.us/1nSFxpb ) that 58-year-old Milton Parker is accused of punching 11-year-old Anatoly Veltman on Aug. 7 after the boy spilled water on the floor.
According to court papers, Parker ordered Anatoly to clean up the spill and then punched the boy in the face when he apparently did not understand.

Parker was arraigned on the charges Aug. 8 and is due back in court Aug. 26.
