Seems the baby had evidence of earlier injuries, meaning UNNAMED DAD had apparently been abusing him from birth. No mention of a mother in the home....

St. Thomas police say a 25-year-old man has been charged with aggravated assault after a nine-week-old boy was hospitalized.

Police were called to Elgin General Hospital around 8 p.m. on Saturday for a baby suffering from “suspicious injuries.”

The child was found to be suffering from cerebral hemorrhaging, or bleeding on the brain, and also had previous suspicious injuries.

He was transported to London Hospital in critical condition, but on Tuesday was reportedly in stable condition.

The child’s father was charged with one count of aggravated assault on Tuesday and was being held pending a court appearance.
