A 2-month-old West Toledo boy was hurt seriously during what police believe was a shaken-baby incident at his home.
The baby, whom police declined to identify, was admitted to Toledo Hospital on Friday. The infant was in critical condition in the intensive care unit, investigators said.
They believe the incident occurred at the baby s home in the 1800 block of Stahlwood Avenue. The baby s father took his son to the hospital because the baby s color and heightened irritability seemed amiss, Detective Vince Mauro said. The baby s mother stayed home with her 3-year-old son.
Detectives are investigating how and why the baby was hurt. No charges have been filed. Police were notified Sunday.
Lucas County Children Services also is investigating, spokesman Rod Brandt said.
