A Vassalboro man has been charged with assaulting his 8 month old son.

Maine State Police charged 23-year old Dylan J. Wood with assaulting the infant boy earlier this year. Wood was arrested by State Troopers last Saturday and taken to the Kennebec County Jail and charged with aggravated assault. He has since made bail and been released.

The 8 month old infant, Blaze Wood, was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland on January 2 with serious injuries. He remains there recovering from his injuries.

State Police, working with the Kennebec County District Attorney's Office, decided last week to charge Dylan Wood with the felony assault charge.
