Richmond man arrested after infant allegedly in his care Suffers Nearly 30 Serious Fractures, Injuries


Richmond police arrested a man recently after a baby reportedly suffered nearly 30 bone fractures, including to their skull, ribs, spine, arms and legs late last month.

According to police, paramedics and Richmond Police officers were called to Keri Anne Court, to find the 3-month old had suffered head injuries. The baby also had bruises all over as well as potential internal injuries.

Police report the suspect, 34 year old Sean Dykes, was with the baby during the time the injuries occured, and was allegedly the only person in contact with the infant.

Dykes allegedly told officers he suffers from multiple personality disorder and was stressed out when they questioned him.

According to the citation, Dykes allegedly told police he went into a rage, grabbed the baby by their abdomen, and slammed them on the bed in a blackout of anger. The next thing Dykes recalled, the citation continues, was the baby then having a seizure.

He then continued in the statement to police, saying he sees that it could be possible he is the only one that inflicted these serious injuries, and that he is sorry for his actions and would apologize to the child if he could. He then allegedly demonstrated on a teddy bear how he injured the infant.

Another victim was interviewed by investigators, and told police Dykes had strangled them earlier this year, and inflicted injuries that hurt for weeks.

He was arrested and charged with first-degree assault/domestic violence, first-degree criminal abuse of a child 12 or younger, and second-degree assault/domestic violence.
