Central Texas father charged with beating his infant child

A Central Texas father was arrested earlier this week for injuring one of his own children.

34-year-old Joshua Farren was taken into custody on Tuesday.

Court documents show his five-month old was harmed while in his care last November.

The mother took her child to a local hospital.

The child had injuries to his leg, ribs, and skull. And may have been injured by being shaken or thrown.
