NEW YORK MILLS — A New York Mills man was charged Wednesday with violently shaking a child and causing injury.
Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Derrick O’Meara, director of Oneida County Child Advocacy Center, said Rome Police Detective Edwin A. D’Alessandro and Sheriff’s Sgt. Melissa Bolton took Angel Quinones Jr., 30, into custody for an incident that occurred Friday.
O’Meara said on that day while at his residence, Quinones shook a 2-month-old, causing the child to suffer brain, eye and abdomen injuries.
The child was brought to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse on Sunday, where he was treated for his injuries and released.
Quinones was charged with reckless assault of a child, a class D felony. He was held at Oneida County Correctional Facility pending arraignment in Centralized Arraignment Court. O’Meara said an order of protection was issued against Quinones on behalf of the victim.
Child Protective Service members assigned to the Child Advocacy Center also assisted in the investigation.
