Man allegedly bites nose off his crying infant son

A Fairfield man who allegedly bit off part of the nose of his infant son because the child was crying has been arrested, police said Thursday.

Police were called to an apartment on the 1000 block of Alaska Avenue shortly after 8 a.m. after a “hysterical female” called reporting that her baby was bleeding from the nose, according to Sgt. Troy Oviatt.

Officers arriving at the apartment found a 1-month-old infant bleeding from the face. A number of family members were present including the child’s 18-year-old father, Joshua Cooper, and 17-year-old mother, Oviatt said.

The baby was taken to North Bay medical Center for treatment, where doctors determined the baby’s nose had been severed and the child had suffered possible head trauma.

The child was transferred to Children’s Hospital Oakland, where doctors determined he had suffered a skull fracture and a brain hemorrhage, and had lost one-third of his nose, Oviatt said.

The boy is currently in stable condition, Oviatt said.

Investigators arrested Cooper on suspicion of child cruelty and aggravated mayhem after finding that he had allegedly bitten the baby’s nose off because he was frustrated at the child’s crying, Oviatt said.

An investigation continues into how the baby sustained the skull fracture and brain hemorrhage.
