A 21-year-old man accused of attacking his girlfriend, slamming his baby girl’s head on the floor and biting police officers Sunday was ordered held on a $750,000 bond on Wednesday.

Julian Alequin, 21, was charged Tuesday with aggravated domestic battery of a child under 13, a felony, in the incident in the 2800 block of North Spaulding Avenue, a statement from police said.

He also was charged with misdemeanor counts of domestic battery causing bodily harm; assaulting an officer; and resisting or obstructing an officer, police said.

Alequin was arguing with his girlfriend when the dispute turned physical, and he said, “We’re all going to die,” police said. He allegedly picked up his 1-year-old daughter and threw her to the ground after slamming her head twice on the floor.

Police attempted to detain him, but he “became combative” and bit both officers, Shakespeare District Sgt. Gerald Bremon said.

The infant suffered two skull fractures and was taken to Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago in critical condition, Bremon said.

Alequin was taken to a hospital with a self-inflicted wound, but was later released into police custody, police said. The woman refused medical treatment.

He was ordered held on a $750,000 bond Wednesday and will next appear in court Jan. 21, according to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office.
