FAIRFIELD, Calif. -

A teen father in Northern California is under arrest after police say he bit the nose off his 1-month-old son because he was frustrated with the infant's crying.
   
Fairfield police say 18-year-old Joshua Cooper was being held Friday in the Solano County Jail on suspicion of child cruelty and aggravated mayhem.
   
Police say they received a call Thursday by a distraught woman who said her baby was bleeding from his nose.
   
Doctors later determined the child suffered a skull fracture, a brain hemorrhage and that one third of the child's nose had been severed.
   
The child is in stable condition at Oakland Children's Hospital.
