The Los Angeles Police Department said a 21-year-old North Hollywood man has been arrested for abusing his 14-month-old son, causing “permanent injury”.
The LAPD said in a release that the abuse occurred in March, when the boy was taken to hospital by ambulance for emergency surgery for “permanent head and brain injuries.”
Cesar Cabrera “confessed and confessed to the abuse” during police interrogation, and was arrested on Tuesday, the release said.
He has been charged with assault on a child resulting in paralysis of a permanent nature and child abuse resulting in major bodily injury.
Cabrera was released Wednesday on $100,000 bail, and is due to appear in Van Nuys Municipal Court on September 13.
