Waco police say a woman is facing multiple charges after knocking a man down while he was holding a six-month-old child.
Police spokesman Patrick Swanton said it happened just after midnight Sunday morning at a house in the 3200 block of Ethel Avenue.
Investigating officers said that a woman has involved in an argument with her boyfriend who was holding the child when she struck him in the face, knocking him down.
The man and child fell to the floor but the man was able to prevent the child from being seriously injured.
He, however, was hurt.
Police arrested Rosemay Antoinette Perez at the scene and took her to the McLennan County Jail on charges of assault with bodily injury and felony endangering a child.
