Father of Burned Infant Waives Hearings

The Bradford man accused of allowing his infant to be burned with scalding bath water has waived his preliminary hearing in that case as well as two others.

21-year-old Harvey Rose told police he was getting the 2-week-old ready for a bath, left a container of steaming hot water on a table next to the infant and then left the room. He said when he returned, the water had spilled onto the baby. Later, a caregiver noticed the baby had second-degree burns. The infant was eventually taken to Buffalo Children’s Hospital for treatment.

In another case, Rose is accused of stealing a cell phone from a customer at a bank. According to court papers, the customer left the phone on a counter and Rose took it. He told police he planned on reported that it had been stolen and hoped to get a reward, but he never did report it.

In a third case, while police were investigating an unrelated burglary they found Rose with marijuana. Rose, who is also charged with arson in several cases, remains in McKean County Jail.
