CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Chambersburg man has been jailed for abusing his girlfriend's 6-month-old baby, according to police.

State police said they charged 21-year-old Dustin W. Sipes, of the 300 block of Cosell Drive, with aggravated assault and simple assault.

The child had been taken to the emergency room of Chambersburg Hospital and was later transferred to Penn State Hershey Medical Center, where a doctor found he had suffered numerous broken bones, police said in a news release Tuesday.

The injuries included fractures to both legs, the baby's right arm, and several ribs.

Authorities said some of the injuries were recent and others were in various stages of healing, and all were consistent with child abuse.

The abuse is estimated to have happened over the last 2-3 months, police said.

Sipes was sent to the Franklin County Jail on $250,000 bail.
