2-week-old baby injured, dad faces child abuse charge

TEMPE, AZ - A teenage father was arrested in Tempe on Tuesday after his 2-week-old son suffered injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome, a court document stated.

Anthony Estrada, 19, and Savionne Schartzbauer arrived at Banner Desert Hospital on Memorial Day with their infant, who suffered several bruises and abrasions and was unresponsive.

The baby was intubated to assist him with his breathing.

The couple said their child was “acting weird” prior to their arrival but their statement was vague, according to a probable cause statement.

They said their baby had hit his head on a table in the home while the infant's diaper was changed, court paperwork stated.

Schartzbauer said he left the infant in the care of Estrada for about 20 minutes while she went to buy some bandages, the document said.

When she returned she said her son's eyes were swollen shut.  More
