A 4-month-old boy was placed in protective custody and his parents are being questioned after he was brought to a local hospital Wednesday evening, police said.
The infant was brought to Via Christi Hospital St. Francis emergency room at about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Lt. Doug Nolte said. He was found to have bruises on his buttocks and bleeding in his eyes.
He may also have fluid on the brain, Nolte said. The parents, a 30-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman, were taken to the Wichita-Sedgwick County Exploited and Missing Child Unit for questioning.
“The baby will be fine,” Nolte said.
