Infant hospitalized with head injury

WICHITA — Wichita police are investigating how an infant sustained a head injury serious enough to require hospitalization.

A 21-year-old woman brought her 7-week-old daughter to Via Christi Regional Medical Center-St. Francis Campus at about 2 p.m. Wednesday.

The child was admitted and police said today she is in stable condition with an injury that is not considered life-threatening.

Police are not sure how the injury occurred.

"It is only a suspicion of child abuse," police spokesman Gordon Bassham said. "Nothing has been confirmed."
