Bainbridge--  17 year old Antonio Demarcus Brown is charged with cruelty to a child. He told police while watching his girlfriends daughter, he slapped the 6 month old baby off the bed, sending her to the hospital. 

18 year old Quintoria James lives with her baby on a quiet street in Bainbridge. Neighbor and relative Karen Washington says she often sees the two together. "I think she's a good mother. I've seen her pass by here in the stroller with her baby, keep her baby well dressed.  She seems like she would be a good mom, concerned."

Police say the night before Thanksgiving, Quintoria James' boyfriend, Antonio Brown was babysitting the child while James was running errands. James got a phone call from him that the child was injured, went home and they both took her to the hospital. The infant had a ruptured eardrum and broken arm. 

 "Knowing that the baby was beat, arm broke whatever. It just really hurt me the idea of a little bitty innocent baby, hurt, child abuse. So it really got to me sort of emotionally you know," Washington says.  Police say Brown admitted he got irritated by the baby's crying and slapped her off a bed.

Washington says she wishes her neighbor had been more cautious with the care of her daughter. "I think a mom shouldn't leave her child with no boyfriend or no one. I personally feel that way. Be careful."

After being released from the hospital, DFACS placed the child in foster care. Brown is in jail on five thousand dollars bond.  Police say when the case goes to the grand jury, they will try to bring aggravated battery charges in addition to cruelty to a child.
