A LaBelle man is in the Lewis County Jail in connection with an incident at his residence Wednesday.

Lewis County Sheriff David Parrish reports emergency personnel were called to the residence for a five week old infant with an unknown health problem. The child was taken to Blessing Hospital for treatment of a broken arm.

An investigation led to the arrest of 37 year old Aaron Henderson after he admitted lifting the child by the arm, which led to the injury.

Henderson is charged with endangering the welfare of a child, and is being held on $25,000 cash only bond.
