LEBANON, Ore. (AP) — Police say a worker at an unlicensed day care south of Salem was arrested in connection with an infant who sustained a skull fracture and bruising on his legs.
KPTV-TV reports police received a Department of Human Services referral Wednesday about the 7-month-old infant being treated at a hospital in Corvallis.
Investigators determined the infant had been at a facility in Lebanon where the sole worker was 42-year-old Justin Miles.
Detectives say they interviewed Miles and, along with other evidence, determined the baby’s injuries occurred while in Miles’ exclusive care.
Miles was arrested and booked into the Linn County Jail Friday on charges of assault and criminal mistreatment.
Police say the child’s injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Lebanon police say they have notified other families using the daycare facility.
It wasn’t known if Miles has a lawyer.
