    A Guilford man has been arrested, accused of abusing his 3-month-old child.

    Guilford police started investigating on July 25, when the state Department of Children and Families reported suspected child abuse.

    The baby had been admitted to Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital for vomiting and a swollen head, police said.

    Police investigated and a warrant was issued for Daniel James Rudisill, 31, who went to the Guilford Police Department today.

    Police said Rudisill lived in Guilford at the time of the incident, but provided an address in Sayreville, New Jersey when he was arrested.

    He was arraigned at 121 Elm Street in New Haven this morning and held on a court-set bond of $100,000.

    He has been charged with first-degree assault and risk of injury to a minor.
