A 26-year-old Howard City man was arrested last week on child abuse charges involving a 13-month old child.
The baby’s mother took the baby to Gerber Hospital in Fremont after seeing injuries the baby girl had sustained while in the mother’s boyfriend’s care. The Michigan State Police were then called to Gerber Hospital.
The baby reportedly suffered three broken ribs and bruising, which doctors identified as abuse.
The suspect was identified as Sean Robert Griffin, of Howard City. He was arraigned on a charge of first degree child abuse, a felony.
