The Fairfield Police Department received a call Thursday at 8:04 a.m. from a frantic female who said that her child was bleeding from his nose.

When officers arrived at the apartment on the 1000 block of Alaska Avenue, they found a one-month-old child bleeding from the face, Fairfield police said.

The infant’s 18-year-old father, 17-year-old mother and other family members were present, police said.

The infant was taken to North Bay Medical Center where doctors determined that the infant’s nose had been severed and he had possible head trauma.

The infant was then transferred to Oakland Children’s Hospital, where doctors determined that the infant had suffered a skull fracture and a brain hemorrhage and that one-third of the child’s nose had been severed. The child is currently in stable condition.

According to the criminal investigation, the infant’s father bit the child’s nose off out of frustration from his crying. Police are still investigating how the infant sustained the skull fracture and brain hemorrhage.

Police arrested Joshua Cooper, an 18-year-old Fairfield resident, for child cruelty and aggravated mayhem. Cooper was booked into Solano County Jail.
