UNION TOWNSHIP (KDKA) -- Police have charged a Lawrence County father for allegedly abusing his 4-month-old child.

The baby was taken to Children's Hospital with head injuries back in May, but is now said to be doing well. Doctors determined that the injuries could not have been an accident.

The child's father, Kim Paul Sankey of Union Township, is now facing charges of aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, endangering the welfare of children and simple assault.

He was arraigned Thursday.

Sankey is now being held in the Lawrence County Jail on $50,000 bond.
