Baby's injuries being investigated

6:25 am on 19 June 2010

Police in Palmerston North say are trying to work out when and how an 11-month-old boy received serious injuries.

A Wanganui man, 45, appeared in the Palmerston North District Court Friday in relation to an assault, which left the baby with a fractured skull and two broken legs.

He was remanded in custody until Tuesday.

It's believed the boy suffered his injuries on 1 May in Opunake, but was not taken to a doctor until four days later.
