He said officers boarded the carriage and found the “distressed” child strapped into a stroller.
They arrested a 22-year-old man from Bellbird near Cessnock and he was later charged with a domestic-violence related assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
They also took out an apprehended violence order against the man to protect the baby.
“The young child had injuries to his head,” Supt Sullivan said.
“There were a number of serious allegations made to the police that will be put to Gosford Local Court today but it was clear to police on attending the train carriage that the child had physical injuries.”
He said the couple and the child boarded the train at Central on their way to Newcastle.
