A Phenix City man surrendered to authorities at the Lee County Sheriff's Office on Monday after a warrant was issued for one count of aggravated child abuse.

  Henry James Lewis, 43, was released from the Lee County Detention Center after posting $10,000 bond.

  Sheriff Jay Jones said the charge stemmed from an investigation that started in November 2015.  An investigation found that a 4-year-old boy was physically abused.

  The alleged abuse took place in the Phenix City portion of Lee County, the sheriff said.
