A Plainview man was arrested Monday afternoon, for the beating of his one month old daughter. Twenty-three year-old Gabriel Rodriguez is now charged with injury to a child, a first degree felony.
Rodriguez first claimed the child had fallen from a chair, but doctors determined the injuries were suspicious. The infant is now being treated at a Lubbock hospital, and is expected to make a full recovery.
Children's Protective Services has taken legal guardianship of the child, pending the outcome of an investigation.
