Dad PRINCE CRAWFORD has been arrested and charged with assault after "allegedly" breaking the legs of his toddler son. As is often the the case with these dads, Crawford had been babysitting for only a short time (about an hour) when the "incident" took place. Seems it takes very little time for these goons to get "frustrated" and violent. In addition, doctors found evidence of earlier fractures that had not been treated--this is also typical of child abuse, particularly when the "alleged" perpetrator's explanation does not account for the injuries presented.

An Albany father is under arrest for allegedly assaulting his toddler son.
Police say Prince Crawford, 26, is charged with assault after breaking the boy's legs.
The alleged abuse happened at 137 Clinton Street in Albany's South End.
Police were called to Albany Medical Center when the toddler's mother brought him there for treatment.
Detective James Miller, Albany Public Safety Spokesman said, "she went out shopping for an hour when she got back the father said he was holding the boy when he fell down the stairs and on top of the baby."
X-rays revealed two fractured femurs and multiple broken ribs that were already healing. Police say those injuries happened before the legs were broken.
Miller said, "The injuries were not consistent to what the father said happened. We see that many times in child abuse cases."
Crawford was arrested by the U.S. Marshalls and Albany Police.
Albany Police are now looking into how long this alleged abuse was going on and if Crawford is responsible for the boy's other injuries.
He's being held without bond in the Albany County Jail.
The toddler is in the custody of a family member.
