A Cloquet man was sentenced Friday for assaulting a 3-month-old infant last year.

Orion Harrison Sinclair Verbist, 25, was sentenced Friday to 86 months in prison for felony first-degree assault.

On Nov. 6, 2018 the Cloquet Police Department received information from St. Luke's Hospital in Duluth regarding injuries to a 3-month-old child that were consistent with child abuse, according to a news release from CPD. The infant was transferred to Children's Minnesota in Minneapolis with a fractured skull, arm and rib.

An investigation led the CPD to suspect the infant's father caused the injuries.

A warrant was issued for Verbist on Dec. 19, when he was arrested and transported to jail.
