Spokane father accused of abusing infant

A Spokane man is accused of abusing his 2-month-old daughter.

Daniel S. O’Brien, 23, was arrested Friday after doctors said the girl’s injuries, which include a broken leg, were consistent with abuse, according to the Spokane Police Department.

O’Brien appeared in Spokane County Superior Court today on one count of first-degree assault of a child and is in custody on $50,000 bond.

“The injuries didn’t match up with any plausible explanation,” said Officer Jennifer DeRuweÖ. “It’s not often you find a 2-month-old with fractured bones.”

The girl is expected to survive, DeRuwe said.
