A young Brownsville father is facing criminal charges after his baby ended up in the hospital with an injury to its head.

Marc Rusell Cheramie surrendered to Brownsville police early Tuesday afternoon.

The 21-year-old father is accused of injury to a child.

Investigators told Action 4 News that Cheramie and his wife took their injured baby to a local hospital back on October 25th.

The couple claimed the baby had fallen from a recliner but doctors reported that the injuries to the baby's head did not match their story.

Brownsville police reported that detectives found enough evidence to charge Cheramie.

The 21-year-old father was released from the Brownsville City Jail after posting a $25,000 bond.
