GREENFIELD, Ind. – The Greenfield Police Department is investigating the events that led to an infant being severely injured.

Chief Jeff Rasche tells FOX59 that the 1-month-old spent has spent three weeks in the NICU at Riley Hospital for Children, then a week at home. Now, he says the baby is back in the hospital.

Officers began investigating the case on Saturday. Tuesday, police served search warrants at a home in the 700 block of Brook Street.

On Wednesday, doctors told investigators the baby has multiple unexplained life-threatening injuries consistent with child abuse. Doctors do not know if the injuries are survivable, but treatment is ongoing.

The investigation continues, and prosecutors will determine if criminal charges are warranted after investigators turn over their findings.
