HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A 25-year-old father is behind bars accused of abusing his three-month-old son.

Henrico police charged Travon Owens  with felony child neglect and malicious wounding after his three-month-old son was hospitalized.

Investigators said the charges stem from an incident at the 11 North at White Oaks Apartments off North Laburnum Avenue, but are releasing few details in this case since it involves a minor.

Investigators said the victim was taken to VCU Medical Center last week for a fracture.

While examining the baby, doctors noticed injuries that were consistent with abuse. As a result, hospital officials contacted police and Owens was arrested.

People who live at the apartment complex where the incident allegedly happened were shocked and saddened by the news.
