Man Bites Off Infant Son's Nose

By March 14, 2014

Follow me on:

An 18-year-old California man was arrested for biting off the nose of his one-month-old son. The young boy also suffered from a fractured skull and a brain hemorrhage after his mother called police and reported that the baby's face was bleeding.

On Thursday, Fairfield police responded to a call from a woman who said that there was bleeding from her son's nose.

The month-old boy was taken to two medical centers for treatment where doctors determined that the infant had suffered a fractured skull, brain hemorrhage and that one-third of his nose had been partially cut off, said police.

An investigation led to the arrest of the child's father, 18-year-old Joshua Cooper, who police say bit off part of his child's nose when he became frustrated over the child's crying.

Police are still investigating how the child's skull was fractured.

@Fred Bailey – Are we to assume that the barrage of school shootings is an indicator of superiority. You’re such a douche.

Likes AJSimon’s comment. The authorities will likely discover that the man was smoking synthetic weed which is equally dangerous to all who smoke it.

Hey Fred, keep race out of this. The fact is this trash assulted an infant.
He should be locked up for life
