Father Accused Of Hurting Baby Goes To Court

By: Minna Sugimoto

(KHNL) - A father accused of hurting his baby while he was drunk made his first court appearance Thursday. Recko Roke is charged with three counts of criminal property damage.

Police say the 26-year-old threw large rocks at a bedroom window at his Nuuanu home, after family members refused to let him inside. Pieces of glass fell on Roke's three-month-old son, who was sleeping in the bedroom.

The baby went to the hospital in critical condition, but his condition has since improved.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Monday.
