Glens Falls, N.Y. (The Weekly Vice) - David Cook, a 33-year-old New York man was jailed Sunday after he physically and sexually abused a 7-week-old baby girl.
According to Glens Falls Police, Cook sexually abused his girlfriend's 7-week-old baby while the child was in his care for several days. The child's mother had been staying with a friend.
The child also reportedly sustained a broken right leg, injuries to her vagina and a possible head injury during the alleged assaults.
When the mother returned home Saturday and found the child injured, Cook allegedly convinced her to deny the child medical care, fearing that he would be arrested.
On Sunday, the mother changed her mind and took the child to Glens Falls Hospital to be examined. Cook fled the residence on a bicycle, fearing that he would be arrested. He was located and arrested by police Sunday night.
The baby was listed in critical condition at Albany Medical Center as of Monday night. Cook's relationship to the child has been withheld to protect the child's identity.
Cook was booked into the Warren County Jail and charged with two counts of second-degree aggravated sexual abuse and one count of assault. He is being held in lieu of $200,000 bond.
The case is still being investigated and the mother may face charges for delaying the child's medical care.
