A child abuse incident on Christmas Eve sent a 4-month-old child to a Reno hospital with a head injury, according to RGJ online. According to detectives, the baby's mother said that she left the infant with her boyfriend for approximately 20 minutes. When she returned to her home, the baby was acting different, so she took the child to the hospital, where physicians determined the cause of the injuries to be shaken baby syndrome. The 26-year-old boyfriend reportedly shook the child because he was angry that the infant was crying, so he shook it violently to stop the crying. He was arrested Monday, December 28.
