BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Two Bellingham men have been arrested in separate incidents after Police say they beat their children.

The Whatcom County Sheriff’s office says Gilberto Eduardo Perez was arrested earlier this month after doctors told Police that his one-month-old son’s broken leg was not accidental.

The Bellingham Herald reports that Perez was questioned in 2008 about an injured three-month-old.

At the time it was determined to be an accident, but now investigators plan to reopen the case.

In a separate incident, Bellingham Police arrested Diego-Miguel Antonio Castro.

He’s accused of punching his ex-girlfriend and their three-week-old baby.

The Herald reports the ex-con was also arrested in October after assaulting the same woman while she was pregnant with the child.
