A 32-YEAR-OLD man who allegedly caned his son was arrested and released on bail. A social worker who called at the nine-year-old boy's home at Li Cheng Uk Estate, Shamshuipo, found cane marks on both his hands and legs. The boy was placed in care.

Police were told social workers made frequent visits to the family's home after the boy's brother died of neglect some time ago.
