California man accused of biting off baby's nose

(KTNV) -- A California father is accused of doing something unthinkable. He allegedly bit off his baby's nose.

Local police say they got a call from a hysterical young woman who said her baby was bleeding from the nose. They didn't know what they were dealing with until they got to the home though.

That is when they saw the baby's nose on the floor.

The father, 18-year-old Joshua Cooper, was arrested almost immediately.

The one-month-old baby is now at the Oakland Children's Hospital. He also has a skull fracture and a brain hemorrhage.
