Vernon police say a 24-year-old Rockville man faces a variety of charges after an incident in January which led to serious injuries to a 13-month-old baby.

Police say Mark Anthony Robert was babysitting for an acquaintance’s child  when he became upset and kicked the baby into an entertainment center.  The child required several days’ hospitalization at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and was turned over to custody of the Department of Children and Families.

Robert is charged with assault, risk of injury, cruelty to persons and two counts of making a false statement.  He also was charged with interfering with or resisting police who attempted to serve the arrest warrant.
