Police: NH man arrested after causing head injuries to infant
MANCHESTER — A man was arrested after police determined he caused head injuries to an infant under 6 months of age.
Manchester police said they responded to the home of Anthony Yarbrough, 28, of Manchester, for a report of an infant who had sustained suspicious head injuries. Emergency crews brought the infant boy to the Elliot Hospital and he was later transferred to the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth for further care.
After a week-long investigation, police arrested Yarbrough for allegedly causing the infant boy’s head injuries. He was arrested on a first-degree assault warrant Wednesday and is scheduled to be arraigned in Manchester district court Thursday.
Police said the child is in the custody of family members while he recovers from his injuries.
