SBS: Florida: Marcus Renard Allen charged

A Tampa man has been charged with causing injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome to his girlfriend's 15-month-old daughter.
Police say 25-year-old Marcus Renard Allen was arrested Thursday afternoon on a warrant for aggravated child abuse. The incident happened Nov. 28 while he was watching the child while her mother was at work.
Tampa Police spokeswoman Andrea Davis says the girl is alive but will suffer life-long effects from the injuries.
Police tracked down Allen at a motel in Clearwater where they say he was hiding. He was also arrested on a warrant for failing to appear in court on a drug charge.
He is being held on a $51,013 bond. Jail records did not list an attorney for Allen.
