ELGIN — An Elgin man is accused of shaking his 12-day-old daughter on Oct. 22, leaving the infant with intracranial and retinal hemorrhages causing seizures, officials said Tuesday.

Daniel Cronin, 39, of the 600 block of Page Avenue, has been charged with a Class X count of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm to a victim under the age of 13, as well as a Class 3 felony count of aggravated battery causing bodily harm to a victim under the age of 13.

According to police, officers were contacted Oct. 23 by Chicago’s Lurie Children’s Hospital regarding a 12-day-old girl with serious head trauma consistent with child abuse. The child had been transferred from Sherman Hospital in Elgin.

Cronin later admitted to a Department of Children and Family Services social worker that he had shaken the infant on Oct. 22, police said.

Bail on the charges was set at $30,000 Tuesday, and he was given a Nov. 21 court date in Kane County.
