    Dad Charged With Assaulting 3-Month-Old Baby
    State police have arrested a 26-year-old Thompson dad who is accused of assaulting his 3-month-old baby.

    State police have arrested a 26-year-old Thompson dad after investigating how his 3-month-old baby sustained a skull fracture and facial bruising.

    The state Department of Children and Families contacted state police at 2:15 p.m. on Friday, May 15 and reported that that an injured baby was transported to Connecticut Children's Medical Center.

    The Department of Children and Families started investigating, but could not know how the child was injured.

    State police and DCF then notified detectives from Eastern District Major Crime Troop D, who responded to the medical center and took over the investigation.

    They determined that Nicholas Guarino, 26 was involved in the incident. He turned himself in to police around 8 a.m. on Thursday and has been charged with risk of injury to a minor, third-degree assault and reckless endangerment.

    Guarino appeared in Danielson Superior Court on Thursday today. Bond was set at $40,000 and the case was continued until Aug. 27.
