Huron County deputies arrested a Norwalk man Tuesday for allegedly beating a 9-month-old boy.
Christoffer Mills, 20, was charged with felonious assault.
On Tuesday morning Huron County Children’s Services told deputies they suspected the boy had been beaten.
The injuries came to light Saturday when the boy’s mother took him to Akron Children’s Hospital for an unrelated health problem, Huron County Sheriff Dane Howard said. During routine examinations hospital staff found the boy had suffered a total of nine fractures to the same leg in recent weeks, a report said.
And the injuries didn’t happen during the same incident.
“(There were) two different fractures on two different occasions on the same bone in the lower leg,” a sheriff’s report said.
