A San Bernardino County man was booked Tuesday on suspicion of beating his 5-week-old son, who suffered two skull fractures and other injuries, authorities said.

The infant was recovering in a hospital, where he had also been treated for broken ribs, a broken shoulder bone and numerous bruises consistent with child abuse, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner Department.

David Michael Belvin, 29, who lives in Yucaipa, was arrested in connection with the abuse. He was booked on a charge of inflicting willful harm or injury to a child, authorities said.

Belvin was being held Tuesday at the county's Central Detention Center in lieu of $100,000 bail.
