ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —Albuquerque police said they charged a 22-year-old man with child abuse resulting in great bodily harm after a 3-month-old in his care had to undergo surgery for a brain bleed.

According to the criminal complaint, police went to a home in the 700 block of Halter Drive SW Tuesday after someone reported a baby was in distress.

The infant was rushed to University of New Mexico Hospital where she underwent surgery to repair a brain bleed. She is in critical condition.

Police said Stefon Miller originally told officers the child was injured while he was tossing her up in the air and catching her in a playful manner. On Wednesday, police said Miller admitted to shaking the baby girl out of frustration.

Miller was arrested and charged with child abuse resulting in great bodily harm.
