An Iowa man was arrested after he was accused of slamming a seven-month-old baby into a crib, causing leg and skull fractures. The suspect, identified as Cesar Emmanuel Corona Lopez, of West Des Moines, admitted to causing the injuries to the child.

The injured baby was taken to Blank Children’s Hospital Thursday and the arrest was made after a complaint was filed. Police were called to the hospital for a potential child abuse case after the child was found with a leg and a skull fracture, local media reported.

Both the child's mom and Corona Lopez were interviewed by detectives. However, the relation between the child and the suspect was not revealed.

Corona Lopez was arrested after admitting to "slamming" the baby into the crib, police said. He was charged with child endangerment causing serious injury and is being held in Polk County Jail.

The baby's condition remains unknown. West Des Moines police Lt. Steven Areges said an investigation is ongoing.

In another incident, a daycare provider was charged with child abuse for assaulting an infant boy in Carpio, North Dakota. The accused, identified as 34-year-old Sarah Babinchak, violently assaulted a 5-month-old baby boy. According to the police, she allegedly got angry at the baby as she could not get him to burp and threw him on the floor. The incident took place in December 2019 but the charges were filed earlier this month.

The child was taken to a hospital where he was treated for a fractured skull, bleeding in the brain, and bruises. According to physicians, the child’s injuries were not caused by an accidental fall.
