Father charged after baby injured
MASON CITY (AP) — A Mason City man has been charged with child endangerment after police say he caused a serious brain injury in his 5-month-old baby.
Jeremy Walter Rose, 27, was arrested Thursday night and charged with child endangerment resulting in serious injury. He’s being held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail.
Officers and medics were called to a house the night of June 22 for a report of an infant having difficulty breathing.
