NILES, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

The ice cream man is supposed to bring excitement to children when his truck rolls down the street, but this one took it too far, Pioneer Press is reporting.

An ice cream vendor is facing criminal charges after Niles police say he injured his teenage son, attacking the boy inside his ice cream truck.

Police said Ahmad Namarneh, 44, of 7052 W. Higgins Rd. in Chicago was parked at a gas station at Caldwell and Touhy on the evening of Sept. 7 when a witness reported seeing him push his passenger, later identified as his 14-year-old son, inside the truck.

The witness then told police he saw Namarneh hold the boy by his shirt collar while striking him repeatedly. An object was thrown out of the window of the truck before it pulled away from a gas pump, returning a short time later when Namarneh exited and retrieved the object, police said.

The ice cream truck then reportedly drove west on Harts Road before pulling into the parking lot of the Bunker Hill Forest Preserve.

Police spoke to Namarneh and his son, who both denied that a physical altercation had occurred, though each admitted breaking the other's cell phone, police said.

Namarneh was charged with domestic battery and the incident was reported to DCFS, according to police. The ice cream truck was towed.
