A 21-year-old Buffalo man is arrested on charges of assault in the first degree after a 6-month-old suffered what authorities are calling "non-accidental internal brain trauma."

The Waite Park Police Department responded to a medical emergency Tuesday on the 1200 block of 7th Street South. The officers found a 6-month-old who was unconscious and struggling to breathe, the police department said in a release.


The child was taken to St. Cloud hospital, then transported to Hennepin County Medical Center and remains there in critical condition. 

Cody Anderson remains in custody at Stearns County Jail, and the investigation is ongoing.
