CALIFORNIA – Police in northern California have arrested a father for allegedly biting off his infant son’s nose because he was frustrated with the baby’s crying.
Fairfield police have arrested 18-year-old Joshua Cooper for child cruelty and aggravated mayhem.
Officers responded Thursday morning to a call from a woman saying her infant child was bleeding from his nose.
When they arrived, they found a one-month-old bleeding from the face.
The infant was transported to Oakland Children’s Hospital, where doctors determined the infant had suffered a skull fracture and a brain hemorrhage. One third of the child’s nose had also been severed off.
The child is in stable condition.
