Man accused of seriously injuring infant son appears in court
GLOVERSVILLE, NY (WRGB)---The man accused of punching his week-old son in the head, sending him to the hospital, is back behind bars.
Andrew Allen was in Gloversville City Court Wednesday morning for an appearance.
His lawyer asked that the case be adjourned, and the judge agreed.
Police say Allen was trying to hit the child's mother when she was holding the infant, and that Allen struck the newborn instead.
The baby is in stable but critical condition at Albany Medical Center.
Allen's due back in court next month.
