A newborn child suffered serious brain damage at the hands of her father, according to court documents filed in Hamilton County.

Tyler Davis, 21, of Harrison, was arrested and charged with felonious assault Friday.

Davis became frustrated and “shook the child violently” for multiple seconds Thursday, an affidavit shows. The incident caused a brain bleed in the 4-week-old girl.

“Child, if she survives, will suffer permanent brain damage,” court documents read.

Her mother called 911 and told dispatchers the infant was barely responding.

“She’s twitching, she’s pale, she’s not acting right. He pupils are dilated,” the woman said in the 911 call.

The incident happened at an apartment complex on Harrison Avenue. 

Davis does not yet have a scheduled court date.
