CINCINNATI —A father is in jail Saturday after police said he beat his daughter so badly she had to be taken to the hospital.

Marcus Dawson admitted to striking his daughter so hard that she suffered seizures the following day along with brain bleeding and retinal hemorrhages, authorities said.

The child abuse pediatrician at Children’s Hospital diagnosed the case as child abuse after finding numerous facial bruises, including a left side facial bruise that was a hand print, authorities said.

Dawson is now charged with one count of child endangerment and is being held on $25,000 bond, according to court documents.
