Bossier City man arrested for alleged cruelty to baby
BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - Bossier City police have arrested a man who allegedly abused his 4-month-old son.
Corey Jackson brought his child to the emergency room at Willis-Knighton Pierremont on Tuesday, Jan. 25 after the child had a medical emergency at their residence at the Oasis Apartments in Bossier City, police said. Staffers at the Shreveport hospital determined that the baby was unresponsive due to severe respiratory distress. CPR was performed on the baby and staffers were able to stabilize him enough to be transported to the pediatric-intensive care unit (PICU).
Once at the PICU, doctors found multiple lesions, bleeding inside the child’s head, multiple rib fractures, a wrist fracture and bleeding around his eyes. The child’s condition is listed as critical, but doctors say his condition is expected to worsen as his brain continues to swell.
Reports indicate that the injuries where non-accidental.
Police obtained a warrant to arrest Jackson on a charge of second-degree cruelty to juveniles. Jackson was then booked into the Bossier City Jail, where his bond is set at $350,000.
