Oshkosh Man Arrested for Child Abuse after 2-month-old taken to hospital
OSHKOSH, WI – A 31-year-old Oshkosh man was arrested Tuesday for child abuse.
The suspect’s 2-month-old daughter was taken to Mercy Hospital where an exam showed for injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome. The infant was transported to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee.
The condition of the infant is unknown at this time.
“Detectives did travel down there maybe about an hour ago,” says Crime Prevention Officer Joseph Nichols just before 3 PM Wednesday, “but I haven’t received an update in regards to the child’s condition.”
Nichols says cases of alleged child abuse are relatively rare for Oshkosh, and taken very seriously.
Charges are expected to be filed against the suspect soon. His identity is being withheld until then.
