DAVIDSON COUNTY, NC -- A seven-month-old baby is in the hospital with unexplained bruises and three broken ribs, according to the Davidson County Sheriff's Office. The child's father, Brandon Lee Gossett, 25, was arrested and charged with Felony Child Abuse.

Davidson County investigators say the Department of Social Services reached out to deputies about the possible child abuse in the Friedburg area. Detectives investigated on Thursday and later arrested Gosett. His bond was set at $50,000 and he'll appear in court in late January.
