Greenfield Police Investigating After 1-month-old Boy Hospitalized With Severe Injuries

The baby was not breathing when he arrived at Hancock Regional Hospital over the weekend.

GREENFIELD, Ind. -- Officers with the Greenfield Police Department are investigating after an infant was hospitalized with severe injuries.

The 1-month-old boy was not breathing when he arrived at Hancock Regional Hospital over the weekend. The hospital notified police and the Department of Child Services about his condition. 

He was then moved to Peyton Manning Children's Hospital with severe injuries, Greenfield Police Chief Jeff Rasche said.

Rasche described the baby's condition as "grave."

The baby spent his first three weeks in the NICU, then was home for about a week before he was taken to Hancock Regional.

Officers have been to the child's house in Greenfield, looking for evidence. Police and the prosecutor are expected to meet to discuss the case. They say in a statement that the child's injuries are "consistent with child abuse."

No arrests have been made.
