A city man has been arrested for allegedly abusing a four-month-old child, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.
Narciso Alejandro, 22-year-old, has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child, child abuse and neglect, and contempt of court.
Alejandro was arrested on Monday.
Authorities began investigating after a four-month-old child arrived at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center with a number of broken ribs.
Alejandro allegedly inflicted the injuries on the child at a residence in Paterson in August, authorities said.
Alejandro could face ten years in prison if convicted.
