WOODS CROSS, Utah – Police arrested a father and charged him with two counts of second-degree felony child abuse after the child’s mother noticed injuries.

Ryan Keith Knight told police he caused the injuries, but he said it wasn’t intentional. The alleged offenses occurred on June 11, and Knight was arrested June 13.

According to charging documents, the baby’s mother noticed the child’s leg was bent in a strange direction, so she took him to a doctor. The 6-month-old boy had multiple fractures and bruising to his head and ear.

Knight is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
