MUSKOGEE, Oklahoma - Muskogee police arrested a man they said caused severe injuries to his girlfriend's 1-year-old son.

Police arrest Nicholas Dobbs for child abuse by injury. Investigators said, in November, Dobbs shook Gunner Asher so severely it put him in the hospital with critical injuries.

The boy's father said Dobbs was babysitting when the injuries happened.

He said Gunner is recovering but will likely be blind, have hearing issues and will have to spend time in a rehabilitation center.

An online fundraiser has been set up to help the family. You can donate here.
