Alex George Deserly has been charged in Great Falls after he allegedly kicked a baby several times.
Court documents state that officers responded to a report of a domestic dispute on Wednesday night on 10th Street North involving a drunk man.
When officers arrived at the residence, the mother of the 10-month old child said that Deserly had been drinking alcohol, and grabbed her and then kicked the baby three times in the stomach.
Two people who were also at the residence told police that they heard the altercation, and heard Deserly through the wall threaten to kick the baby again.
The probable cause affidavit says that Deserly initially told police that nothing had happened, and that he had been asleep prior to their arrival. He later changed his story and claimed that the woman had attacked him and struck him in the face.
Medical personnel examined the baby and reported finding a mark consistent with being struck.
Deserly has been charged with felony assault on a minor, and misdemeanor partner/family member assault.
Court documents note that Deserly was convicted Billings in 2005 on a charge of partner/family member assault.
Prosecutors requested that bond for Deserly be set at $25,000, and that if he posts bail, he be required to undergo alcohol monitoring.
