A 25-year-old Lincoln man has been arrested, accused of child abuse because of several injuries to his 13-week-old son.

Police say Victor Patterson Sr. was arrested after the boy's mother took her son to a Lincoln emergency room. She told doctors the boy, Victor Patterson Jr., kept vomiting.

Doctors say the boy had a skull fracture, five broken ribs, a
lacerated liver and a broken collarbone.

Police say Patterson threw the boy into a coffee table, accidentally slammed the boy's head into the bottom of an open medicine cabinet and squeezed him so hard the boy's ribs were broken.

A Lancaster County jailer said Patterson remained in custody on
Tuesday, pending $25,000 bail. Online court records don't list the case yet.
