How does anyone do this too a 13 month old baby?????
BEAVER COUNTY (KDKA) â€“ The parents of a 13-month-old boy were arrested on child abuse charges after the boy allegedly had broken bones, and a skull fracture.
Police say 21-year-old Amanda Riley, and 20-year-old Christian Evans â€” the babyâ€™s parents â€” have been charged with hurting the young boy.
Police say they went to Evansâ€™ home on Vermont Avenue in Rochester to do a welfare check, and the father insisted the baby was fine.
They found the baby had multiple fractures, a swollen face, head and arm, as well as an advanced infection.
The mother allegedly told officials the child broke 10 bones from falling out of a stroller.
â€śThe scene showed that the baby wasnâ€™t being taken care of,â€ť said Rochester Police Chief Frank Mercier. â€śAnd found multiple bruises, contusions and swelling all over the babyâ€™s body. We have no idea why all this was going on.â€ť
The baby was in serious condition with two broken femurs, two broken ankles, two broken arms, two fractured wrists and head trauma.
Police believe the babyâ€™s mother inflicted most of the injuries, possibly over a three-week period.
The boy has been taken to Childrenâ€™s Hospital of Pittsburgh where he is reportedly in critical condition.
Two other adults, Rileyâ€™s boyfriend 26-year-old Nicholas Hrvoich and his mother 59-year-old Kimberly, are also charged for not seeking medical attention for the boy.
The parents will be arraigned Monday afternoon.
