Spokane Police: Father Arrested For Assault Of Infant Daughter

SPOKANE POLICE DEPT. PRESS RELEASE: Spokane Police have arrested 26-year-old Tyson J. Romaneschi and charged him with 1st Degree Assault of a Child after x-rays of his infant daughter showed multiple broken bones and injuries sustained since her birth two months ago.

SPD Major Crimes Detectives began investigating this case on 2/13/12 when the infant girl was brought to a Spokane urgent care clinic. The infant's mother (Romaneschi's girlfriend) said the child had a fever and needed medical attention. The child was transferred to a local hospital where doctors discovered multiple fractures in various stages of healing, indicating the injuries had been sustained over the past two months since her birth. Doctors determined the injuries were not consistent with accidental injuries.

Through interviews with multiple witnesses, SPD detectives gathered significant evidence to suggest Romaneschi had injured his daughter. The child's mother was determined by detectives not to be a suspect.

Detectives were concerned Romaneschi might flee the area and asked patrol officers to look for Romaneschi. SPD Ofc. Dan Cole located Romaneschi on a routine traffic stop near Wellesley and Mayfair. Ofc. Cole arrested and booked Romaneschi into the Spokane County Jail for 1st Degree Assault of a Child.

The infant is in protective custody.
