A man charged over the alleged assault of a five-month-old baby boy at a home in Ipswich has today been denied bail.
The 23-year-old appeared in Ipswich Magistrates Court via video link, charged with grievous bodily harm over the alleged assault on his de-facto partner’s baby last Tuesday.
The court heard horrific details of the alleged attack, including how the infant has now been left with lifelong injuries as a result.

“The medical opinion indicates the child received significant injuries as a result of being violently shaken and has suffered what appears to be permanent injuries in terms of brain damage,” Magistrate Virginia Sturgess said.
The baby boy was found unresponsive inside a Bundamba home around 3.30pm on June 23.
Police said the infant suffered “multiple serious injuries” and was rushed to the Queensland Children’s Hospital in a critical condition.
In court today, the man’s bail application was refused by the Magistrate and he was remanded in custody to reappear later this month.
