NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) _ A 21-year-old Norfolk man has been charged with injuring his 19-day-old daughter.

Court records say Justin Gore was arrested Wednesday and charged with intentional child abuse. An affidavit filed by a Norfolk police detective says a doctor who examined the child earlier Wednesday reported bruising and cranial bleeding that the doctor said would be consistent with an infant being shaken or struck.

The affidavit says Gore told the detective about shaking the baby during the night of Sept. 27 or early morning of Sept. 28. The detective says Gore reported that he was frustrated because the baby wouldn't stop crying.

A Madison County jailer said Gore remained in custody on Friday, pending $150,000 bail. Online court records don't list the name of Gore's attorney.
