Baby suffers brain damage after alleged serious assault

A MAN on a flight back to QLD from WA has been arrested for allegedly seriously assaulting a baby in July.

On July 20 police were notified after a four-month-old baby girl was transported from her Serin Street home to the Gold Coast University Hospital for the treatment of serious injuries after she became unresponsive.

She was taken to a hospital in Brisbane where she remains with very serious brain injuries.

A 39-year-old man of no fixed place of abode has been charged with grievous bodily harm and is due to face Southport Magistrates Court today.
