A 18-year-old man in California was arrested for allegedly biting off a third of his infant son’s nose because the child wouldn’t stop crying.
Joshua Cooper has been charged with with child endangerment and aggravated mayhem in the incident.
Fairfield Police responded to the incident Monday after they received a frantic 911 cal from the infant’s 17-year-old mother. During the call, she told police that her one-month-old son was bleeding profusely from his nose.
The infant also suffered from a skull fracture and brain hemorrhaging.
The child is being treated at Oakland Children’s Hospital, and police are continuing to investigate how the infant sustained the other injuries.
