TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

After a 2-day search, Toledo Police say they've arrested Walter Johnson on felony child endangering charges.

Johnson, 32, is accused of assaulting his girlfriend and their 2-month-old child. Toledo Police say he was arguing with his girlfriend and pushed her face into the wall. They say he then threw the baby back at his girlfriend.

"We don't see too many crimes against children like this, but when they do occur, it takes you back," said TPD Sgt. Joe Heffernan. "Because how can anyone do anything to a defenseless child?"

Shortly after the incident, police say the infant was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
