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.
