Baby hospitalized for fractured skull, dad arrested


AVON LAKE — A 2-month-old baby boy has a fractured skull but is expected to be OK after a domestic fight on Vinewood Drive Monday evening.

The baby's father, Victor Cabrera-Zamora, 23, is charged with abduction, felonious assault, two counts of domestic violence and improperly handling of firearms in a vehicle.

Officers were called to 270 Vinewood a little before 9 p.m. Monday.

According to a news release, a caller to 911 was unable to speak to a dispatcher, but it was obvious a disturbance was going on at the home.

Police arrived to find the 2-month-old bleeding from the head.

According to police, the Cabrera-Zamora was at the home to visit the baby and get a document from the baby's mother when he and the woman, who police aren't identifying, got into a fight.

"During the physical altercation, the father was attempting to leave the house down some stairs and fell against a piano while holding the baby," according to a police statement. "The baby struck its head on the piano, causing the head injury."

The mother and baby were both taken to Fairview Hospital, and the baby was later transferred to Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital.

The mother was treated and released, and the baby had surgery yesterday but is expected to be OK, according to police Lt. Duane Streator.

As Cabrera-Zamora was being taken into custody, police learned he had a loaded AK-47 assault rifle in his vehicle.

In addition to his charges, police suspect Cabrera-Zamora of being in the United States illegally and are investigating his citizenship status, according to police. He is being held in the Lorain County Jail.
