An Auckland man who jammed his fingers into his daughter’s throat causing her to almost drown in her own blood has been jailed.

The 27-year-old man – whose name is suppressed to protect the identity of his child – was found guilty at trial of wounding with reckless disregard and injuring with reckless disregard.

The charges came from an incident in February last year when the man and his partner were woken up by their 27-day-old baby crying.

The girl’s mother picked up the baby and brought her and a bottle into the bedroom where the offender lay in bed.

She left her daughter to be fed by her partner but when she returned shortly afterwards there was blood streaming from the girl’s mouth.
