A man from Indiana is now sitting in Jail and hopefully they will let him remain there until the end of days for what he did. According to report by Law Enforcement, the man thought it would be a good idea to hit his 17-day-old baby in the head.
West Lafayette police say the department investigated a report of battery involving serious bodily injury to an infant at 2 p.m. Sunday. WLPD Lt. Troy Harris says when officers arrived on the scene, they found a baby covered in bruises. The baby was immediately rushed to the local hospital, but its injuries were so severe it had to be transported to an Indianapolis hospital.
The 18-year-old father, Brendan Bell of Lafayette was interviewed and he admitted to hitting the baby. “What he explained was, the baby was crying,” Harris said. “The baby was fussy, and he lost his temper and struck the baby. He was remorseful; he was sad. Obviously, he wished it hadn’t happened.” The 18-year-old father is now facing preliminary charges of battery and neglect, he has a bond set at $25,000.
