From Local Sources
DUBOIS — An investigation into numerous severe injuries to a 2-month-old child ended today with the arrest of a Dubois man.
On August 29, Indiana State Police say Detective Brock Werne received a complaint from Memorial Hospital regarding a 2-month-old child that was brought in with multiple injuries.
Medical staff informed Werne and Detective Sergeant Juli Schnell that the child had suffered a broken collarbone and arm, both on the right side, and a bruised right ear.
Werne and Schnell learned that days prior to August 29, the child’s father, 24-year-old Trent Grider of Dubois, had allegedly pulled the child out of a car seat by the right arm.
Police say the action was with enough force to cause the child’s right arm and collarbone to break.
On Thursday, an arrest warrant was issue by the Dubois County Circuit Court for Grider.
Werne and Master Trooper Brian LaRoche arrested Grider this morning at his place of employment in Saint Anthony.
He is preliminarily charged with a Level 3 felony count of neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury, a Level 5 felony count of neglect of a dependent resulting in bodily injury, a Level 3 count of battery resulting in serious bodily injury to a person less than 14 years old, and a Level 5 felony count of battery resulting in bodily injury to a person less than 14 years old.
