PHOENIX -- A Goodyear man is in custody for allegedly injuring his one-year-old foster daughter after she threw her sippy cup and spilled its contents.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 36-year-old Pedro Manzo was arraigned Thursday on one count of child abuse.

He was ordered held on $18,000 bond.

Goodyear police say Manzo returned home on Monday evening with his two biological children and his two foster children.

He told authorities that he later found his foster daughter slumped on the floor and not breathing.

While Manzo was performing CPR, his wife came home and immediately called 911.

While at the hospital, doctors noticed the child had bruises on her head and shoulder.

Police say Manzo allegedly admitted that he grabbed his daughter under her jaw, shook her and caused her to pass out.
