MAN HELD IN ALLEGED BABY BEATING

Taylor Police arrested a 23-year-old Taylor man Saturday in connection with the beating of his 6-month-old son. 

Taylor Police and paramedics were called to a home in the 6600 block of Pine Street Saturday at about 5 p.m. when the infant’s mother found the child having difficulty breathing and going in and out of consciousness. 

The baby was transported to Detroit Children’s Hospital where he has undergone surgery and remains in critical condition. 

Investigators interviewed both parents who were home at the time. The father is being held pending a  warrant request to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office for possible charges.
