Bremerton man arrested after allegedly biting infant son several times

A Bremerton man was arrested Monday after allegedly biting his infant son several times between October and November.

According to a certificate of probable cause, a Child Protective Services investigator emailed photographs of the injuries sustained by the child to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office. The pictures show what appear to be bite marks to the infant’s right hand, chest, and left cheek, documents read.

The CPS referral indicated that the infant lives with his father, Ronald J. Thompson, and his mother in Bremerton.

Authorities talked with Thompson inside a police vehicle and showed him the pictures of the infant’s injuries. Thompson advised they were all bite marks he caused and stated “I didn’t mean to hurt him as much as I did” and that it wasn’t intentional.

After the interview with Thompson concluded, he was arrested and transported to Kitsap County Jail where he was booked for second-degree assault of a child with a bail of $50,000.
