A 24-year-old Hillsborough County woman was arrested this week for aggravated child abuse that deputies say likely will impact the victim forever.

The incident happened on April 10 and involved a 2-month-old child. Deputies say Brienna Craig took the child to the hospital after he was found unresponsive.

Detectives on the case say the baby suffered numerous injuries that are consistent with shaken baby syndrome. The victim will likely suffer from the effects of his injuries for the rest of his life, they say.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office issued an arrest warrant for Craig after the incident. Deputies say she fled the county but was found Tuesday in Polk County.

Craig was arrested for aggravated child abuse and booked into the Polk County Jail.
