Man admits breaking baby’s arm at Red Lake reservation

The caretaker of a baby girl in the Red Lake Indian Reservation has admitted he was responsible for her broken arm, pleading guilty to child endangerment on Monday, the FBI said.

Travis Aaron Rosebear, 21, took care of the 15-month-old girl and five other children while their parents were away. Investigators said he admitted he carried the girl by one arm and swinging her down a hallway after becoming frustrated sometime between Dec. 31, 2011, and Jan. 3, 2012.

Her arm was fractured as a result, and she had a bruise in the back of her head, they said.

Rosebear, who pleaded guilty in federal court in Minneapolis, faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison. His sentencing has not been scheduled.
