Police will allege that while at the beach, the man was responsible for his daughter suffering a fractured upper arm.

In an earlier callout for community assistance, police alleged the infant had sustained fractures and bruising while at the beach between 9am and 12pm.

She was taken to the Perth Children’s Hospital where she received medical treatment for her injured arm and other injuries that were identified.

The Merriwa man has been charged with aggravated assault occasioning bodily harm and he is due to appear before the Joondalup Magistrates Court on April 5.
