Man, 20, accused of breaking boy's arm

A 20-year-old Spokane man is in jail on charges that he broke a young boy's left arm.

Andrew J. Long told Spokane police that the boy, who is less than a year old, fell off a couch at 4925 E. Commerce Ave. on Saturday, but doctors said the injury was too severe.

Long was caring for the boy while his parents were out for the evening. He said he fell asleep with the boy on the coach and awoke to him crying. The boy underwent surgery to repair his arm.

Long remains in jail on $75,000 bond after appearing in court on a second-degree assault charge.
