GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- A Grants Pass man was arrested yesterday on charges of child abuse against his three month old son.
The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety said Joshua Whetzel was arrested for assault and criminal mistreatment charges.
The department says they responded to a call from D.H.S. case workers who were at Three Rivers Medical Center about the child.
They say the child's injuries were life threatening, and was flown to OHSU in Portland.
That's when detectives went to the family home where they made the arrest.
The case is currently under investigation.
