AM LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — A 2-month old boy from Lowell is in the hospital with critical injuries that authorities say were caused by his father.

Prosecutors say 22-year-old Christopher Berry is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Lowell District Court on a charge of assault and battery on a child causing substantial bodily injury.

Police responded to a city home on Saturday where they found the baby boy unresponsive.

The infant was brought to Lowell General and then transferred to Tufts Floating Hospital for Children in Boston.

Authorities determined the injuries were not accidental.

It was not clear if Berry had a lawyer for the case.

The Sun of Lowell reports that Berry is a veteran who served in Afghanistan.
