FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - A Fort Wayne man is in police custody accused of felony child neglect.

Police say the son of 28-year-old, Tobias Ward, was taken to the hospital in October of 2010 with a fractured skull and internal bleeding.

Ward told the toddler's mother another child had thrown a large toy car at the boy, hitting him in the head.
