A 22-year-old man charged with assaulting a 10-month-old boy on a train.
The baby was strapped into his pram when he was allegedly assaulted by the man and sustained head injuries at Gosford on the New South Wales central coast.
The man, from Bellbird, near Cessnock, was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
It is believed the man was with the boy’s mother who was also on the train.
Police Super intendant Danny Sullivan said the baby was in a stable condition in Gosford Hospital.
“The child is now in the care of Family and Community Services. The young child had injuries to his head,” he said.
“It was clear to police on attending the train carriage that the child had physical injuries.
“I think, when it comes to domestic and family violence, it’s a matter that’s of serious concern to the entire nation.
“One of the things we say in relation to domestic violence is – don’t be a bystander.
“I can only praise those bystanders for their quick thinking.”
