An 18-year-old father has been arrested and charged with biting off his 1-month-old son’s nose.
Fairfield Police in California’s Bay Area responded to a call from the infant’s “hysterical” 17-year-old mother, who reported that her son’s nose was bleeding. The infant was transported to a hospital where he was diagnosed with a skull fracture and brain hemorrhage.
The baby daddy, Joshua Cooper, 18, was taken into police custody.
From NY Daily News:
Cops said they later learned Cooper snapped and chomped off the boy’s nose after becoming frustrated with the tyke’s wails of pain.
The baby was taken to the hospital and is currently in stable condition.
The disturbed dad was charged with child cruelty and aggravated mayhem.
Police are still investigating how the infant’s skull was fractured.
