INDIANAPOLIS - Police said they’re looking into a case of child abuse in which a 40-year-old man broke a not even 6-months-old baby boy’s arm.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) said that on Aug. 17, a detective with the IMPD Child Abuse unit was sent to Riley Hospital for Children. A 4-month-old boy’s arm was broken, and witnesses said at the time of the injury, the baby was in the care of Jonathan Farina, 40, of Indianapolis.
Nearly a month later, IMPD said a Marion County sheriff’s deputy was patrolling in the area of the 700 block of East Market Street when he came into contact with a man later identified as Jonathan Farina, who told the deputy there was a warrant out for his arrest.
Deputies said they searched the mainframe justice system and found a warrant issued for Farina with a $20,000 bond.
Farina was arrested and booked into the Marion County Jail.
