A Greene County man faces charges of neglect of a dependent.
23 year old Dustin Lake was arrested after authorities learned of a 3 month old girl that was taken to the Greene County Hospital with a broken arm.
Lake is accused of being responsible for the child’s broken arm and failing to get immediate medical attention.
He told authorities that a puppy bit his foot causing him to drop the child.
The girl is being treated at Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis.
X-rays show two previous fractures on the collar bone and leg.
The mother told police she did not know of the injuries.
Lake is being held on a bond of $4,000.
