AUMSVILLE, Ore — An Aumsville man is in jail after Marion County Deputies say he assaulted a 6-month-old boy that left him in critical condition.
Deputies were first alerted by medical staff at Santiam Hospital in Stayton after the victim was brought in for treatment last month by the mother’s boyfriend, 30-year-old Robert Andrew Pinsky.
Pinsky claims the boy fell off the couch while he was babysitting him. The child was flown to Oregon Health & Sciences University-Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland for more intensive treatment because of the severity of his injuries. Doctors then told investigators that the injuries were not consistent with falling off a couch.
Pinsky was ultimately arrested and charged with one count of first degree assault. He is lodged at the Marion County Jail. His bail is set at $150,000.
The victim remains in critical condition at OHSU.
