    A New Hampshire man is accused of physically abusing an infant.

    Keene police say 24-year-old Derek J. Forcier was charged with first degree assault.

    Investigators say they opened a case with the state's child welfare agency after a boy less than 1 years old had been treated for a broken left leg earlier this month.

    Forcier was arrested on Tuesday and was released on $15,000 personal recognizance bail.

    He's due back in court on Oct. 6.

    It's unclear if he has an attorney.

    Anyone with information in this case is encouraged to contact Keene police at 603-357-9820.
