Iowa man’s tossed rock hit toddler, police say

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a Davenport man who threw a rock at his girlfriend also hit the woman’s toddler.

Jail records say 22-year-old Swayze Santiago remained in custody on Friday, pending $5,000 bail. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press. Santiago is charged with child endangerment with injury and domestic abuse.

The Quad-City Times says (http://bit.ly/19F76gl) officers on Saturday were sent to the home Santiago and the woman share. An arrest affidavit filed with the court says Santiago’s rock hit the woman on her right shoulder, bruising it, and the child in the head, leaving a cut.

The woman has requested an order of protection.
