LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A crying baby drove a Louisville father to assault the child's mother, according to the victim, but the suspect told police he hit the woman repeatedly because she doesn't take care of their home, an arrest report states.

The victim said Abdallah Ahmad Saleh, 30, became irritated early Sunday morning when their 2-month-old daughter began crying. The woman said Saleh struck her repeatedly out of frustration over the crying infant.

The arresting officer said Saleh admitted striking the woman but claimed he was irritated because she doesn't keep their home on Goldsmith Lane clean.

Saleh is charged with fourth degree assault.
