Father Arrested for Assault on 10 Month Old Daughter

Suspect Arrested for Assaulting 10 Month Old Daughter

Spokane Valley Major Crimes Detectives arrested 19-year-old Logan S. Rose for Assault of a Child 1st Degree and continue to investigate how his 10-month-old daughter sustained a fractured skull and intracranial bleeding.  

Early this morning, prior to 1:30 a.m., Spokane Valley Deputy Ortiz responded to the emergency room of Valley Hospital to investigate a child assault.

Emergency room staff told Deputy Ortiz the mother and father (Rose) brought their 10-month old daughter to the hospital for a head injury.  The child was admitted to the emergency room and later diagnosed as having a skull fracture and severe brain bleeding.

While in the emergency room, staff observed Rose “violently” throw his daughter against the hospital gurney and yell at her to “Go to sleep!” after he became angry because the child was crying.

Deputy Ortiz contacted and arrested Rose for the assault the hospital staff witnessed.  After being advised of his rights, Rose stated he was angry at the hospital and admitted he may have thrown her down a “little harder” than he should have.  When asked about the initial head injury, he stated he didn’t know how it happened but was very concerned when he noticed it, causing him and the child’s mother to seek medical attention.

The child remains in Pediatric ICU in serious condition.  She is expected to recover from her injuries barring any complications.

The mother of the child was interviewed but not charged.

Rose was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Assault of a Child 1st Degree.

Due to the severity of the young child’s injuries, Major Crimes Detectives were called to continue the investigation and additional charges are expected.  Child Protective Services was notified and will work with detectives to ensure the safety and well-being of this 10-month-old child and her 3-year-old sibling, who remains with his mother.

Anyone with specific information regarding this investigation is asked to call Detective Stockman at 509-477-3787.
