An Austintown man has been arrested on multiple charges including child endangerment after allegedly injuring his four-week-old son.

Just after midnight on Tuesday, April 26, police were dispatched to Akron Children's Hospital in reference to the four-week-old boy being treated for injuries.

Upon arrival, officers located the boy and his twin sister. Police say they observed that the injured boy's head was swollen.

A social worker for the hospital told police that suspect, Nicholas Tigges stated while he was putting the twins to bed a few hours prior to the incident, his son was acting "fussy" and "making weird noises."

Tigges stated that after he laid his son down, he began to doze off when the noises began to get worse. Upon checking up on his son, he noticed his head was swollen.

Police say Tigges immediately woke up his wife, who called her sister, who urged them to take their son to the hospital.

Police say doctors advised that the boy had five skull fractures and two brain bleeds, further stating that this appeared to be non-accidental trauma.

EMTs told police that they observed additional trauma to the boy's groin region, as well as visible bruising at the knee and thigh area.

The boy was transferred to the main campus of Akron Children's for further treatment. 

Tigges is currently in the Mahoning County Jail facing charges of Endangering Children, Felonious Assault and Domestic Violence.

Austintown Police Detective, Jordan Yacavone tells 21 News that the boy is still being treated, and if he dies, Tigges will also be charged with Aggravated Murder.
