An township man was reportedly arrested here Wednesday morning for allegedly injuring his 11-week-year-old baby daughter in early March, according to state police.
Thomas Lillibridge, 19, of the Canook Trailer Park on U.S. Route 40 here, was reportedly charged with third-degree aggravated assault and third-degree endangering the welfare of a child, authorities said.
According to police, the baby girl is alleged to have been injured in an incident that took place on or near March 6.
State police reportedly said they became aware of the case after Lillibridge, the baby’s father, called 911 due to an emergency involving the infant and the baby was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
The baby was reportedly first taken to South Jersey Healthcare-Elmer Hospital, but was later transferred to South Jersey Healthcare-Regional Medical Center in Vineland.
She was then later taken to Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Del., reportedly for further treatment, police said.
The hospital staff, according to police, reported the child suffered from retinal hemorrhaging. The injuries were indicative of non-incidental trauma from shaken baby syndrome, police said.
