Prince William County father charged with child abuse

Prince William police on Tuesday said a man was charged with child abuse after an investigation launched when his injured 4-month-old was brought to a local hospital.

Sonny Mauricio Rivas-Loza also was charged with malicious wounding.

Police released few details, but said the investigation began Dec. 15 when Rivas-Loza's son was treated at a hospital for "seizures and other medical emergencies." Rivas-Loza, who was arrested Dec. 17, is accused of abusing the infant for about a two-month period.
