CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -- A Cincinnati man is behind bars, accused of seriously injuring a newborn baby.

Police say Cedric Butts, 23, squeezed his 2-month-old son when the child wouldn't stop crying. According to court documents, Butts squeezed the baby's arms, fracturing two of the child's ribs.

Butts faces one count of endangering children and one count of felonious assault.

His bond was set at $500,000. The case will move to the grand jury later this month.
