SHILOH, IL (KTVI) – A Metro-East father is behind bars for allegedly beating his four-month-old baby. Authorities arrested Randall M. Penn, 20, of the 2300 block of Richland Prairie, after his four-month-old was admitted to St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

Police were called on July 11 when the child was brought to the hospital with multiple injures that doctor’s felt may have been caused by abuse. On Saturday, July 20, a 7-count warrant was issued for Penn’s arrest after a police investigation.

Charges against Penn include aggravated battery of a child and domestic battery. He is currently jailed on a $750,000 bond.
