Tempe man accused of child abuse after boy taken to hospital

TEMPE, Ariz. — A Tempe man is accused of child abuse after his 2-week-old
son was taken to the hospital with signs of shaken baby syndrome.

Bond was set Wednesday at $150,000 for 19-year-old Anthony Isaac Estrada, who
doesn’t have a lawyer yet.

He was arrested Tuesday and booked into Tempe City Jail on one count of child
abuse.

Court paperwork shows the infant’s parents brought him to Banner Desert
Hospital in Mesa around 2 a.m. Monday.

Doctors said the boy was reportedly unresponsive, bruised, cut and suffering
from traumatic injuries to all four quadrants of his brain.

Police said Estrada told officers that he held the baby in the air with his left
hand, but then lost control and the child fell onto the couch, rolled and hit a
board.
