ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque infant is in critical condition after police say she was shaken by her father.

Police say 22-year-old Stefon Miller first told officers he was playfully tossing the 3-month-old girl in the air when she was injured. Then he said she hurt herself while playing in a bouncing chair.

A criminal complaint says Miller eventually told police he shook his daughter out of frustration.

Miller called police Tuesday because the girl was unconscious and had trouble breathing.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1h7zD0a) that doctors at University of New Mexico Hospital performed surgery on the girl Tuesday night because of a brain bleed.

Miller has been charged with child abuse resulting in great bodily harm. He was being held Thursday at the Metropolitan Detention Center on a $50,000 cash bond.
