BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- Battle Creek police say they are seeking a first degree child abuse warrant against a 25-year-old man who was watching a 7-week-old baby when it wound up in the hospital late last month.
Officers say on June 25th dispatchers received a 9-1-1 call for medical assistance at a home on Douglas in Battle Creek.
The baby remains at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo, suffering from a “serious trauma to the head”.
TV-3 reports that the mother has temporarily lost custody of her 2-other children because of the incident.
The suspect is being held on unrelated charges and may be arraigned for the abuse allegations Thursday.
