WEST NEW YORK, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a New Jersey man tried to throw a crib at a woman while a toddler was still in it.

The 2-year-old child was not injured in the incident. But the 24-year-old West New York man faces aggravated assault, child endangerment and weapons charges.

Authorities have not released the man’s name to protect the identity of the alleged victims. They also have not said how he knew the woman.

Authorities say the woman was on a bed with her 12-year-old son when the man hit her with a beer can during a domestic dispute on Saturday. The man then allegedly tried to throw the crib, but the woman’s son and his 14-year-old brother stopped him.

The man remained jailed Wednesday on $75,000 bail.
