A Trafford man has been accused by county detectives of breaking his 2-month-old son's left arm and both ankles.

Charges were filed Tuesday against Corey Joseph Riley, 28, in connection with the boy's injuries.

When the child was taken to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh for treatment of arm injuries on June 20, a doctor found the additional ankle injuries and suspected the fractures were the result of abuse, Detective Robert Weaver wrote in a criminal complaint.

Riley told Weaver during an interview that he “might have used too much force trying to put the victim's arm in a shirt,” according to the complaint. Riley could not explain the injuries to his son's ankles.

Weaver said in the complaint that the doctor's report indicated the ankle injuries were caused by “twisting, wrenching, shearing forces” and the arm injury would have required more force “than any normal, reasonable parent would use in handling a baby.”

Weaver said the child is now with his mother.

A warrant for Riley's arrest has been issued by District Judge Helen Kistler. Riley is charged with aggravated assault, child endangerment and simple assault.
