February 28

Kansas City police arrested a 20-year-old father Thursday night for allegedly abusing his 2-month-old baby, who sustained two broken arms, two broken legs and several broken ribs.

The injuries were discovered about 6:35 p.m. after the baby’s parents took him to Children’s Mercy Hospital for a high fever. Doctors noticed bruising on the baby’s neck and forearm. Further tests revealed the broken bones in various stages of healing.

Detectives questioned the parents and believed the father had abused the baby. Investigators were planning to submit a case file today to prosecutors who will determine whether to file charges
