CBS News – Joshua Cooper, a teen father in Northern California, is under arrest after police say he bit the nose off his 1-month-old son because he was frustrated with the infant’s crying.

Fairfield police say Cooper, 18, was being held Friday in the Solano County Jail on suspicion of child cruelty and aggravated mayhem.

Police say they received a call Thursday by a distraught woman who said her baby was bleeding from his nose.

Doctors later determined the child suffered a skull fracture, a brain hemorrhage and that one third of the child’s nose had been severed.

The child is in stable condition at Oakland Children’s Hospital.

Police say they are still trying to determine how the skull fracture and brain hemorrhage occurred.

      He won’t need a vasectomy. He will be in prison, probably getting raped. My god how horrible of a person can you be to do that to a baby! Yes they cry and they will always cry for the rest of their life. The poor baby was probably crying because he knew the dad was a piece of SHIT!!!! the child probably got the fractures from him slamming him down or shaking him. He will rot in HELL!

    Let the rats have a go at his big nose…and while they are at it….let them gnaw on his eyes, ears, and lips. He is definitely one of the” worst of the worst” as far as humanity is concerned.
