DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) A Davenport man has been arrested on suspicion of physically abusing is girlfriend's baby.

The Quad-City Times reports 22-year-old Samuel Brown was arrested Friday on suspicion of child endangerment with injury and criminal mischief charges.

Davenport Police Capt. Dale Sievert says Brown had been dating his girlfriend for four months when she asked him to babysit her baby boy on Monday while she was at work.

The baby received bruises to both sides of his cheeks that radiated back to both ears and up toward the child's scalp, according to Brown's arrest affidavit. The child also suffered bruises on the top of his left forearm.

Police say the child was examined by a physician who confirmed that the injuries were consistent with abuse.
