LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a Louisville man has been charged with fourth-degree assault after he allegedly hit 1-year-old girl in the face and chest.  

According to the arrest warrant, it happened on March 26. That's when police say 21-year-old Shaquille Moore was watching the child while her mother was working.

When the mother returned home, police say she noticed injuries to the child's face and chest. The mother called police and the child was taken to Kosair Children's Hospital for treatment. 

The LMPD's Crimes Against Children Unit took pictures of the child's injuries. Police say the injuries included bruising to the child's chest, "a ruptured blood vessel to the right eye and busted upper lip."

Police say Moore admitted hitting the child. 

Moore was arrested on April 16; he is charged with one misdemeanor count of assault (child abuse), and remains jailed on a $25,000 full cash bond.
