An 8-day-old baby is being treated for a broken leg, and Wichita Police say the injury was the result of abuse.

Just after 7 p.m. Tuesday, a woman brought her baby to Via Christi Hospital St. Francis, and told doctor's his leg was accidentally broken when she was changing his diaper.

Her story didn't add up and hospital staff called Police. Officers from the Exploited and Missing Child unit arrived and questioned the 24-year-old mother, who then admitted that the child's father had abused the baby, breaking his leg.

Police later arrested a 27-year-old man for child abuse. Formal charges have not yet been filed.
