A 19-year-old man in Indiana is facing numerous felony charges after he allegedly admitted to viciously beating his 2-month-old son to get back at the baby for pulling out his nose ring.

Aaron Scott Evans was taken into custody on Monday and charged with one count of battery to a child resulting in serious bodily injury and neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury, court records reviewed by Law&Crime show.

Court documents state that officers with the Avon Police Department responded to a call at a local hospital on the morning of April 3 about a 2-month-old boy who was admitted with serious and suspicious injuries, Indianapolis Fox affiliate WXIN reported. Avon is about 15 miles west of Indianapolis.

According to the report, doctors said that the child’s body was covered with bruises, and he had a cut on the top of his head that had already begun healing, indicating that it was sustained in the days before the baby was brought to the hospital. Due to the severity of the boy’s injuries, he was taken to Riley Children’s Hospital in Indiana for more specialized treatment.

After arriving in Indianapolis, doctors reportedly told police that the infant had also broken both legs in addition to the bruising. He had suffered multiple rib fractures, bleeding in the area between the skull and his brain (subdural hemorrhage), and had an array of contusions. Doctors reportedly found evidence that the infant had previously suffered a subdural hemorrhage.
