Lockport man admits breaking toddler’s arm

LOCKPORT – A Robinson Road man pleaded guilty Monday in Niagara County Court to throwing a 23-month-old girl while he was baby-sitting her and breaking her left arm.

Michael J. Zinck, 23, admitted to a reduced charge of attempted second-degree assault and could be sentenced to as long as four years in state prison when he returns Aug. 21 before County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas.

Deputy District Attorney Holly E. Sloma said Zinck became angry with the child, leading to the Dec. 18 incident, which court papers called “non-accidental.”
