HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A man has been arrested and charged with assaulting his 2-month-old daughter who is hospitalized in critical condition.

Hartford police say 32-year-old Marcus Rooks of Manchester was arrested Tuesday and charged with first-degree assault and risk of injury to a minor. His bond was set at $1 million.

Police were called to a home in Hartford on Monday afternoon with a report of an unresponsive baby. The infant girl was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police say Rooks had an outstanding warrant for his arrest out of Hartford on a third-degree assault charge.

It was not immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
