A father from Onslow County is wanted for felony child abuse involving his 15 day old son.
The Onslow County Sheriff's Office says 22 year-old Paul Conway Buckley Junior of Sneads Ferry abused his son so severely he had brain hemorrhaging and dislocated ribs.
Sheriff's deputies were called to Onslow Memorial Hospital December 26th to investigate a child abuse complaint. Deputies who responded said the 15 day old
victim had bruises on his face and a broken left arm. The child was transported to Pitt Memorial Hospital due to the severity of the injuries.
Lawmen say the child's parents said the baby fell to the floor while Buckley was changing his diapers.
