Police say the 10-month-old was flown to a St. Louis hospital over the weekend in critical condition with brain trauma.

Investigators say the 23-year-old man caring for her hit the baby several times, including with a metal tool box and a cell phone, because she would not stop crying Saturday night. The child’s custodial mother saw injuries to the face and body, and went to a local hospital.

The alleged abuser was arrested on Sunday on a charge of endangering the welfare of a child. We do not know his name yet.

  1. Somebody needs to beat him in the head with a toolbox!

  2. Thats to quick and easy. I say smash his hands first so he’ll suffer more and never be able to hold a cell phone or tool box again. And scream at him to stop crying as you hit him in the head lightly so as to not cause a tramatic injury just a severe headache. No pain killers either. Never understood how anyone could think that hitting a baby would do any thing but make the baby cry louder.

  3. His name is Zachary Mohr.
