Abilene police investigating 'substantial' injury of 3-month-old

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - Abilene police are investigating the injury of a 3-month-old who sustained 'substantial' bruising and showed signs of blunt force trauma. 

The investigation began when Hendrick Medical Center treated the infant for bruising and small lacerations all over her body at the beginning of February, according to court documents, which state doctors described at least some of the bruising as "substantial" and said injuries the infant's ear were indicative of blunt force trauma. 

During the investigation, the documents state the infant's mother was interviewed and said she had no idea where the injuries came from or that they even existed. She also implicated her boyfriend.

Detectives have filed a search warrant to gain access to information and data history stored in the mother's phone.

KTAB and KRBC are choosing to withhold the identity of the mother and her boyfriend until a formal arrest is made.
