(CALIFORNIA) - It's one of those stories that you'd never expect to hear. A father in California allegedly bit off a portion of his infant son's nose.

Cooper, who is 18, was arrested for child cruelty and aggravated mayhem. Doctor's believe the baby boy also suffered head trauma.

According to The Sacramento Bee, police received a frantic call from a woman Thursday morning, claiming her infant was badly bleeding. When police arrived, they found the baby with a bloody face.

"It's terrible. It's terrible. I'm literally heartbroken. I can't believe it."
