The father of a 5-month-old child has been charged with child endangerment causing serious bodily injury.
Nelson Enrique Rieman, 27, was arrested Friday, accused of inflicting injury upon Arayu Rieman of 2060 S.E. King Ave.
Police said Arayu was examined by a doctor for a broken collarbone in August. Medical staff did not call police at the time because the explanation for the injury was reasonable, officers said.
Police began an investigation on Sept. 15. Doctors said they discovered bleeding on the brain.
Additional tests found previous, similar injuries -- allegedly caused by shaking -- in different stages of healing, said Detective Larry Penland.
No injuries could be seen on the outside and there was no skull fracture, police said.
As for the broken collarbone, police do not know how that injury occurred. According to police, Rieman said the collarbone was broken when the baby fell off a couch and landed on the floor, evidently landing on a shoulder. Police have no proof that the collarbone injury happened in any other manner.
Bond was set at $25,000, cash only. Nelson Rieman remains in jail.
Arayu is home with his mother, Lathalia Bolden.
