Barnegat man charged with injuring 7-week-old son

Roderick Dorns was arrested Thursday and charged with aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly fracturing his infant son’s ribs.  The 7-week-old infant is hospitalized in critical condition. 
The assault occurred Monday and the baby suffered multiple rib fractures and retinal bleeding.

The investigation began after the state Division of Youth and Family Services called Barnegat police to tell them that a baby was being treated at the hospital for fractured ribs and retinal bleeding, injuries that are consistent with shaken baby syndrome.

After a joint investigation by Barnegat police, and the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims and Major Crimes units, Dorns was arrested.
