A newborn baby is fighting for life in hospital and her 25-year-old father Juan Daniel Visagie has been charged as police investigate how the young child received her critical injuries.
The 30-day-old girl was taken by family to Armadale-Kelmscott Memorial Hospital on Friday, September 4 just before midnight.
Doctors identified serious injuries that are believed to be life-threatening, a WA Police spokesman said.
It is believed the child received the injuries at her Gosnells home. She remains in a critical condition.
Mr Visagie, from Gosnells, has been charged with grievous bodily harm. He was refused bail and is in custody at Hakea Prison.
