— A Cary man is accused of physically abusing a 6-week-old girl.

Nathan Roy Webb, 27, of 1212 Old Apex Road, was arrested Wednesday and charged with felony child abuse. He was being held Wednesday in the Wake County jail under $500,000 bond.

According to an arrest warrant, the child suffered multiple fractures, including a broken leg.

The alleged offense occurred between May 15 and June 1.

In a domestic violence protective order obtained against Webb on June 10, Heather Upchurch accused him of breaking through a locked door and threatening her over the child. She said she noticed something was wrong with the baby on June 1, and emergency room physicians determined the child had a broken leg and other bone fractures, according to court documents.
