WOODBURY, N.J. (CBS) — A Gloucester County, New Jersey couple accused of seriously injuring the man’s young daughter during a recent visit at their home are now facing aggravated assault charges.
The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office says the 2-year-old girl suffered retinal hemorrhaging and bleeding on the brain.
The toddler’s father, 25-year-old Jacob Lihn of Sewell and his 24-year-old girlfriend, Jennifer Pandorf, were charged Friday with aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
Officials say the girl’s mother, who lives at a different address, sought treatment for the girl on April 11 after a three-day visit with her dad. The toddler remains in a South Jersey rehabilitation hospital.
Bail was set at $50,000 for Lihn and $40,000 for Pandorf, and it wasn’t known Saturday if either one had retained an attorney.
