Bath police charged a 24-year-old man with multiple counts of felony assault against his 8-week-old infant.

Police on Thursday arrested Brandon E. Ross of Middle Street on six counts of aggravated assault, three counts of assault and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Ross had been indicted by a Sagadahoc County grand jury. He was being held at Two Bridges Regional Jail on $25,000 bail pending an Aug. 5 appearance in West Bath District Court.

Police were alerted to the case by a Department of Health and Human Services investigator on April 7.

The arrest was the result of a lengthy investigation, said Lt. Robert Savary.

Savary would not release details about the allegations against Ross or the nature or severity of the injuries suffered by the child.

The child has been placed with family members.
