Man accused of trying to flush baby

Posted:

A Pennsylvania man is in custody after a domestic disturbance in which he tried to flush a baby down a toilet.

Police say the incident began around 12:30 a.m. in Pittsburgh's Mount Washington neighborhood when a man and woman living in a home in the 100 block of Southern Avenue started arguing.

The woman and the baby were able to escape after calling the police. The child was taken to a local hospital as a precaution.

The man surrendered just after 2:30 a.m.

It's unclear what charges he will face.
