The situation developed Thursday afternoon when the Beaverton Police Department was called to Providence St. Vincent's Hospital to investigate the possible physical abuse of a baby.
Police said according to staff at the hospital, the infant had been brought in by the mother after an extended period of continuous crying. Once the staff took a look at the baby and noticed injuries consistent with abuse, they informed police.
According to police, statements made by both parents confirmed that the child had been physically abused by the father the previous morning. Detectives also learned that tests revealed that the child had previous injuries that were in the process of healing. After interviewing the father, investigators believe the child had been assaulted not only this week but also about a month ago.
The father, 23-year-old Kenneth Dobrinin, was arrested on several charges, including second-degree assault, third-degree assault and criminal mistreatment.
The infant, which is now in the custody of the Department of Human Services, is the couple's only child.
