An Attleboro man is due in court Tuesday for allegedly beating his 4-month-old baby.

22-year-old Ryan Ellis of Jackson St. is charged with assault and battery on a child with substantial bodily injury.

Police say Ellis called 911 Sunday to report a medical emergency involving the boy. The baby was taken to Hasbro Children's Hospital for a "significant" leg and other injuries. He is expected to be okay.

Ellis was arrested following a police investigation. He was arraigned in Attleboro District Court Tuesday on a charge of assault and battery on a child under 14 causing serious bodily injury.
 
Ellis was held on $50,000 bail.

The State Department of Children and Families has taken custody of the boy.
