Montgomery man accused of breaking infant daughter's ribs, fracturing skull

NORRISTOWN, Pa. - A Montgomery County man is accused breaking his 24-day-old daughter's ribs and fracturing her skull. 

Luis Bonanno, 34, of Harleysville, was arrested for two counts of aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of children and related charges, according to Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele. 

Authorities say the investigation began on September 21, 2016 when the baby's mother took her to the hospital for poor oral intake and a clicking noise while she was breathing. The baby was transferred to CHOP, where doctors discovered she had fractures to her right ribs and a fracture to her skull, as well as other issues. 

According to the DA, an investigation revealed the father, Bonanno, caused the injuries after he pressed on the baby's chest several times. 

Bonanno was arraigned and his bail was set at $100,000. He failed to make bail and was taken to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility. 

He has a preliminary hearing set for March 10.
