A Little Rock man left behind his 18-month-old daughter in a car Sunday morning so he could chase and punch his girlfriend, authorities said.
Police say Jason C. Howard left his vehicle running on Cantrell Road with the toddler inside so he could get out, chase down his live-in girlfriend and punch her. She was knocked unconscious by the blow, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.
Howard was arrested shortly after 10:15 a.m. in the 13700 block of Cantrell Road. He was charged with third-degree domestic battery and second-degree endangering the welfare of a minor.
The report didn't specify who took custody of the child.
Howard remained in the Pulaski County jail Monday morning with bail not yet set.
