Unborn Baby Killed, Pregnant Woman Injured In 'Senseless' Shooting: Police christianabella/Pixabay

A man allegedly threw his 1-year-old baby son after an argument with his girlfriend at a hotel in Memphis, Tennessee on Sunday, Jan. 1.

Officers from the Memphis police department reportedly responded to a disturbance at the Airport Inn, 1441 E. Brooks Rd in Memphis on New Year’s Day, just after 5 p.m. A woman who called the officers told police officers that she had been involved in a physical altercation with her boyfriend, Edwin Conner, 29, Yahoo News reported.

According to the victim, Conner was arguing with her at the Airport Inn. During the argument, Conner punched her in the face and began strangling her. During the assault, the victim reportedly lost consciousness and woke up to Conner hitting her in the face again. Conner then began pulling her hair and biting her head, arms, and back.

However, the victim eventually got away from Conner, left the room, called the police, and informed them about the assault. However, by the time officers responded to the scene, Conner had left the hotel, WREG-TV reported.

Around three hours later, the officers returned to the hotel. When the officers returned, the victim said Conner came back and took their son from the backseat of her car as she was getting ready to leave.

According to the victim, after Conner took their child from the backseat of the car, Conner allegedly ran across the parking lot and dangled the child over a fence as if to drop him over it. When the victim approached Conner, he pulled the child back over the fence, threw him on the ground, and ran away from the parking lot.

According to the offices, the child sustained bruises and cuts to his head and lip. After a brief investigation, officers eventually found Conner in the area and took him into custody.

Following his arrest, Conner is charged with Aggravated Assault, Child abuse and child neglect or endangerment, Evading Arrest on Foot, Attempted First Degree Murder, and Employment of a Firearm in the Commission of a Dangerous Felony. He is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 3.
