ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. (WBTV) - Bond was set at $1 million for a Rowan County man accused of child abuse.

Brandon Douglas Calloway, 33, was charged on Saturday by Rockwell Police with child abuse inflicting serious bodily injury. Calloway was arrested at a location on Barringer Road.

The incident occurred at an apartment in Rockwell, according to investigators.

According to arrests warrants, Calloway is accused of abusing his 4-month-old son and inflicting injuries that caused multiple brain hematomas for the child, as well as injuring the infant’s spinal cord in two places.

Bond was set at $1,000,000. Calloway made a first appearance in court on Monday.

“We deserve to know what happened to that baby,” said Billie Jo DeBerry, the baby’s step-grandmother. “I know there’s going to be a trial and I pray to God that he can be man enough to tell the truth, that’s what our family needs, we need the truth, we want the truth.”

4-month-old Remington remains in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist.
