WATERBORO, Maine — A 21-year-old Waterboro man is in jail for allegedly breaking his 15-month-old son’s legs.

The York County Sheriff’s Department said Shaun Dubnick-Sadowski was charged with aggravated assault Tuesday night after his son was brought to Goodall Hospital in Sanford.

Sheriff’s officials said their investigation revealed that Dubnick-Sadowski twisted the child’s legs until he felt them snap, but that he offered no good explanation for his actions.

Officials said the incident happened Sunday while the child’s mother was at work. She told investigators that Dubnick-Sadowski at first told her the child fell down and hurt his ankle, and later changed his story to say he fell on the boy while playing.

Officials said the child is still in the hospital and in the custody of the state Department of Health and Human Services. The mother is not expected to be charged.
