LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Police suspect a 26-year-old Lincoln man of injuring his 5-month-old daughter.

Police say Andrew Vossen was arrested Thursday. Officer Katie Flood says Vossen took the baby to a family doctor on Tuesday for breathing problems due to congestion. An X-ray showed that five of her ribs had been broken. The arrest affidavit says Vossen told an investigator that he'd accidentally dropped the baby a few weeks earlier. A doctor told police the injuries weren't accidental.

Investigators believe that the injuries occurred when Andrew Vossen squeezed the baby's chest, in frustration.  The victim has since been released from the hospital.  He remains in custody at the Lancaster County Jail.
