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.

Hello

@ Demented:  I understand you are sticking up for your friend, but I don't appreciate you slamming everyone against the wall when everyone didn't say she was involved.  I said 'This guy is a coward!! Only a low life worth nothing would beat on a baby that cannot defend himself and probably the mother that will not defend herself. If the mother is involved, then she needs to be beat herself for letting it happen.'

I didn't say 'the mother is involved' I said IF.

I am the type of person that if I said something I'm woman enough to say yes I said it.  I will not have words put in my mouth and slammed when I didn't say it.

I am not going to put my personal business on blast but I know what she is going through and how she feels with the pos in her life.  Manipulated, controlled, scared for her child and herself.  Leaving will not be easy but the first thing you need to do is cut off all contact.  If you don't you are setting yourself up for more abuse.

I am sure that these things have gone on for ages, but when family values are lowered or completely gone, I feel these things will happen more often. More and more young women are letting strangers into their lives without really knowing the person. It is to late to learn what a person is like "after" the fact.

Just wanted some people to know... By no means Im not saying at all was this right but.. This boy alway had a job an would do anything for anyone that needed it.. An no he never beat her!!! She was on her facebook a few days ago talking about how much she loved him an loved their family they had!!! So my point of view she had to have known what was going on!!! So she should have the same charges he has right now!!!!

Hello

Don't know you or him.  Don't really care to.  I don't like to be friends with cowards that beat on helpless children.

I know the SR has a hard time giving all the details, but IF

'CHRIS IS GREAT WITH KIDS FORREAL HE IS A HARD WORKER LOVES CHILDREN AND IS A A LEGIT GOOD DUDE HE IS LIKE MY BROTHER WE HAD OUR PROBLEMS BUT HE WOULD NEVER "ABUSE" A CHILD'

is true, then why is he sitting in jail for beating this child?

IMO you are guilty by association

gpcmonkey

@ gpc monkey

  You're an idiot and just as guilty as he is.   FOR   REAL!!!

Seen it All

@gpcmonkey.. He has CONFESSED!!  So, what part of the story are we suppose to wait for?  The part where the stupid @$$ mother admits she loved this man so much that she ignored the obvious signs of abuse?!?   She will be charged next, and the both of them will rot in h e l l !!!

 This waste of skin makes me want to puke!  Why are women attracted to a-holes like this butt wipe!

If you don't know him personally then keep you comments to yourself ..I know my son he would never hurt a child..

starryeyes83

The child didn't hurt himself....were you  there?     Is he covering up for the  baby momma?  Are they on  crack or heroin?   

 

Once your   son  made headline news  it's  public domain.  

Concerned For A...

@ Stacey2373........Your joking, right? This either has to be a joke, or you are incredibly stupid. I get that he is your kid and all, but how in blazes could you defend him, after doing such a HORRIBLE thing to a defensless little BABY!!!! You must have been making excuses for him his entire life. Get real lady!

 If he confessed why are people defending him? If you're my friend or family and you do something like this, your a$$ can rot in jail for all I care.

Lay off the man, he is in jail and all for wat? He didn't do it but he took responsibility cuz no one else would have. I know my brother and he would die before he hurt a child, he has a great big soft heart for kids unlike some of you on here. You would rather blame a man you don't know for a crime he didn't commit than try and find out who really did it. When the truth comes out and he is proven innocent then ya'll will be salty as hell, and I hope you have the decency to publicly apologize for falsely accusing a man you never met or ever will meet.

Thank you gpcmonkey for stickin up for him you are truly an awesome friend and I only wish the person who hurt the lil guy will grow some gut and come forward and tell her friend wat she did, instead of leavin an innocent man to take the punishment that was meant for her.

starryeyes83

 You don't confess when you're innocent.    Do you?    Why would he cover,   AND yes,   The idiot birther should be charged  the same as him. 

If ya don't do anything to stop  the abuse  you may as well have hit him yourself.
