Father admits to hurting 2-month-old daughter

By Michael Purdy

Bixby, Okla. — A Bixby father was arrested Monday night, after being accused of child abuse.

Police say Nathan Putnam was watching his 2-month-old daughter, while the mother and grandmother went to the store.

During this time, the infant began to cry. This bothered Putnam, so he admitted to grabbing the girl's foot and pulling it in a downward position.

A short time later, the mother and grandmother returned home and noticed bruising on the infant's foot.

Putnam described the girl's injury as, "popped blood vessels at the base of the ankle."

A doctor checked out the infant and determined the injury to be consistent with child abuse.
