Baby Hurt: Mother arrested, father on the run after baby girl suffers suspicious head injuries

Posted: Updated:

A Cleveland mother behind bars, and a father on the run after a baby girl suffered suspicious head injuries. 

Shanita Tompkins has been arrested for child endangering, and child abuse detectives are looking for Demetrius Jackson.

Investigators say the 5-month-old baby girl was injured earlier this month, and was taken by private car to Metro.

Doctors found the child had skull fractures. The father told 19 Action News by phone that he dropped the child, but investigators say that was not the case.

19 Action News Reporter Ed Gallek is investigating and will have much more starting First at Four.
