A man is accused of burning his 8-week-old daughter with a hand-held blow dryer.

The Detroit News reports that 28-year-old Shawn Treadwell was arrested Sunday by Plymouth Township police and charged with first-degree child abuse.

He faces a February 1 preliminary examination.

Doctors at the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor called police after seeing the girl's injuries.

Police say she had second-degree burns to her face. Burn impressions from the end of a hair dryer's metal grate also were on her arm and leg.

The newspaper reports that Treadwell is a four-time felon.
