A four-month-old baby boy remains in stable condition Saturday evening after police say his father shook and beat him.

Binghamton Police say 23-year-old George Valentin of Binghamton shook his child and struck him in the head. The alleged abuse happened on Thursday night. Police say the baby's mother took him to Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton, where he was then transferred to Upstate Medical State Center in Syracuse with serious head injuries.

Valentin was arrested just before 3:00 a.m. Friday morning, after Lourdes Hospital told police the injuries looked suspicious. He is charged with second-degree assault. Valentin was arraigned in Binghamton City Court, and remains in Broome County Jail without bail.
