A Vallejo man suspected of physically abusing a 1-month-old boy has been arrested in Minnesota, Vallejo police Detective Cpl. John Garcia said. The baby suffered brain trauma and bleeding and broken ribs and, as of today, was in critical condition at Children’s Hospital and Research Center in Oakland, Garcia said. The unresponsive infant was brought to Kaiser Permanente Vallejo Medical Center on May 20, Garcia said. Police determined the baby’s mother’s boyfriend, 21-year-old Joseph Allen Wilson, caused trauma to the baby, Garcia said. Police obtained a $1.5 million warrant for felony child abuse causing great bodily injury and tracked Wilson to Shakopee, Minn., Garcia said. Shakopee police arrested Wilson on May 25, and he will be extradited to Solano County in the upcoming days, Garcia said. Vallejo and Shakopee police, Children’s Hospital and Research Center, the Solano County District Attorney’s Office, and Solano County Children Protective Services investigated the incident, Garcia said.
