Officials say a baby was brought to a Georgia hospital with broken bones and that two people have been arrested.

Barrow County Sheriff's Capt. Cory Almond said in a statement Monday that 20-year-old Jarrett McCloud and 22-year-old Megan Richmond were arrested on charges of aggravated battery and first-degree child cruelty. McCloud was also charged with reckless conduct.

Authorities say investigators were called to Northeast Georgia Medical Center on Wednesday and found that the infant was being abused. They also found that the child had numerous broken bones along with other injuries.

News outlets report that Almond did not disclose the baby's condition or the child's relationship to the suspects. Almond says the investigation is ongoing.

It's unclear if those accused have lawyers who could comment.
