3-Month-Old Racine Girl Suffers Apparent Abuse

Racine authorities said a 3-month-old girl has been hospitalized with serious injuries consistent with child abuse, and a 25-year-old man who lived with her has been taken into custody.

The state Department of Children and Families said the girl had head trauma consistent with being shaken, along with healing rib fractures.

Racine police said the girl was hospitalized Sunday. She remained in critical condition Friday.

A Journal Times of Racine report said the 25-year-old Racine man was arrested Friday.

Police said the man’s 1-year-old son lived in the same house as the girl, who was not the man’s daughter. The boy was been placed in county custody.
