CHICAGO (AP) - A 61-year-old Chicago man faces felony aggravated battery charges and is accused of throwing a caustic substance on two adults and two children during an argument.

The Chicago Sun-Times (https://bit.ly/1KGgCpB ) reports that Gregory Brown was arrested Friday, shortly after the incident on the city’s West Side. On Sunday a judge ordered him held on $1 million bail.

Police say a 1-year-old boy suffered serious burns to his left arm and a 2-year-old girl suffered burns to her chest, left leg, left hand and abdomen. A 31-year-old man suffered burns to his chest, back and face and a 39-year-old woman was burned on her right arm. All of them were taken to area hospitals where police say their conditions stabilized.

It was not immediately clear if Brown has an attorney.
