A St. Albans man was arrested after police said he pushed his daughter into a wall and beat her mother.
Jay Christopher Hamlin, 28, is charged with malicious assault and child abuse or neglect resulting in injury, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
The complaint said the St. Albans Police Department responded to a domestic incident about 10:30 p.m. Monday at a home on Spruce Street. When police arrived, they found a woman n a couch bleeding from her mouth and hand.
The woman was taken to the hospital and told police that Hamlin shoved their daughter's head into the wall, the complaint said. When she confronted Hamlin and tried to intervene, she said, he punched her in the face causing her to lose consciousness.
Police said the woman also had a shoe print on the right side of her face and neck area, where she had bruising and swelling. She had a fractured bone in her eye socket that required surgery.
Hamlin was being held in the South Central Regional Jail.
