Missouri police are investigating after a three-month-old baby was admitted to hospital with severe injuries, WREG News reports.
According to a police report, authorities were called to the hospital when a baby was admitted with bruising on his face, arms and legs, as well as facial swelling.
The little boy also had blood around his nose, and appeared to have superglue smeared around his mouth.
The report states the three-month-old’s injuries were “consistent with abuse”. Medical tests also confirmed the infant had a fractured skull and several broken ribs.
The person who alerted police said the “mother’s sister had asked her to check on the baby”. A juvenile was watching the baby, before she took him to hospital after realising he was in “poor condition”.
The Department of Human Services have been made aware of the case, and an arrest is expected to be made later this week.
The little boy is still recovering in hospital.
