Man arrested on investigation of assault of a infant

FORKS — A Forks man has been arrested on investigation of second-degree assault that sent a 4-month-old to a Seattle hospital.

Elijah J. Tabor, 21, was booked Monday night into the Clallam County jail after sheriff’s detectives determined he caused the child’s injuries, which included a brain bleed, a fractured femur and a fractured rib, the sheriff’s office said in a press release.

The child was in intensive care at Seattle Children’s Hospital on Tuesday, Sheriff Brian King said.

The child was initially taken to Forks Community Hospital on March 23 and flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where emergency room doctors determined the child’s injuries were caused by non-accidental trauma, the press release said.

Child Protective Services contacted the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office on March 26 to investigate the suspected child abuse. At the request of Forks Police Department, sheriff’s detectives investigated and developed probable cause that Tabor had caused the child’s injuries, the press release said.
