PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland police arrested a 25-year-old man accused of severely injuring his 5-week-old son.

Sgt. Pete Simpson said Wednesday the baby was hospitalized over the weekend, and detectives made the arrest after interviewing medical personnel and the boy’s parents.

Simpson says detectives believe the father, Samuel Phelps, threw the baby into a chair and dropped him on his head. He’s been charged with assault and criminal mistreatment.

The baby remains in the hospital but is expected to survive.
