Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News



A 19-year-old Upland man has been accused of physically abusing his 2-month-old daughter.

Online court records say Dalton Howard is charged with intentional child abuse causing injury. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment on Howard’s behalf. Howard’s arraignment is scheduled for Monday.

The child has been hospitalized for treatment of a brain bleed and bruising on her face and torso. The child has been in state custody since Feb. 11.      

Court records say the baby’s mother was in school when the baby was injured.
