CUMBERLAND COUNTY, PA (WPMT) A Silver Spring Township father is charged with abusing his two month old daughter.

Township Police began investigating Mark Oliver, after they were alerted to suspicious bruising on  the infant after she was brought into Hershey Medical Center for a check-up.

The bruising was learned to have occurred as a result of  Oliver, squeezing the infant at his home. During an interview Oliver said his daughter requires feeding throughout the night which he is responsible for.

Throughout the feeding process, he would place her in various positions while attempting to get her to take food. He admitted to becoming frustrated and squeezing the infant when she squirmed.

Charges against Oliver include Simple Assault and Endangering Welfare of Children.
