RICHMOND, Ky (LEX 18)  – A Richmond man is in jail after police say his infant daughter suffered nearly 30 bone fractures while in his care.

According to an arrest citation, Sean Dykes was taken into custody at a residence on Keri Anne Court after a 3-month-old suffered head and facial injuries. Police also say that the child had bruises all over.

The arrest citation states that Dykes was the only individual with the child when the injuries occurred. Investigators say that Dykes told them he went into a rage, grabbed the baby by the abdomen and then slammed the child on the bed in a blackout of anger.

The next thing Dykes recalled, the citation continues, the infant suffered a seizure.

The arrest citation then says Dykes demonstrated how he injured the infant by using a teddy bear to reenact the incident.

He was arrested and charged with first-degree assault/domestic violence, first-degree criminal abuse of a child 12 or younger, and second-degree assault/domestic violence. Dykes was arraigned Monday morning and is being held on a $100,000 bond.
