Teen father arrested for biting nose off infant

A teenage father in Northern California is under arrest after police say he bit the nose off his 1-month-old son because he was frustrated with the infant's crying. Joshua Cooper, 18, was being held Friday in the Solano County Jail on suspicion of child cruelty and aggravated mayhem, Fairfield police said in a news release.

Police said they received a call Thursday at 8 a.m. by a distraught woman who said her baby was bleeding from his nose. Doctors later determined the child suffered a skull fracture, a brain hemorrhage and that one third of the child's nose had been severed.

Police say they are still trying to determine how the skull fracture and brain hemorrhage occurred.

 

Solano County Chief Deputy District Attorney Terry Ray said that Cooper had not yet been charged but that she planned to charge him with child abuse and aggravated mayhem. The child-abuse charge carries a penalty of up to 12 years, and the aggravated mayhem charge carries a potential penalty of life in prison.
