A Northshore man is facing charges after his five-week-old son was found with broken ribs and brain trauma.
Authorities say 25-year-old Timothy Noel is accused of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile.
He was arrested after he called the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office last week to report his son had stopped breathing.
Noel told police the boy started vomiting and bleeding from the mouth while he was feeding him, investigators learning later that the infant had sustained injuries consistent with child abuse.
