ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Bond has been set at $100,000 for an Albuquerque man father accused of shaking his baby boy.

According to court documents, Anthony Serna told police he was playing with the 3-month-old when his eyes rolled back and mucus started coming out of the child’s mouth.

Serna says he tried to wake the baby by shaking him for 10 seconds.

That’s when the boy’s body stiffened up, so he put him down and called 911.

KOB-TV reports doctors at University of New Mexico Hospital told police the child had multiple brain bleeds, bruises on his head and face, a tear in his mouth and a big bruise on his lower back.



Police say Serna was arrested for alleged child abuse because the injuries did not match his story.
