A Stillwater man is behind bars Saturday morning after assaulting a woman while she was holding an 8 week old baby.

Police responded to the domestic call on Friday. They say 21-year-old Jared Putnam repeatedly hit, kicked, and choked the woman. They also say he damaged her phone so she could not call police.

Putnam left the house with the infant but police found the child unharmed shortly after. Putnam was found the following day. He is in Saratoga County Jail in lieu of bail.
