Texan accused of throwing toddler son out 3rd story window
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Investigators say a Texas man has been arrested after a neighbor reported seeing him throw his 2-year-old son out a third-story window.
Travis County jail records show 32-year-old Fnu Faizullah was being held Friday on a charge of injury to a child. Austin police say the boy suffered cuts and bruises in Tuesday's incident at some apartments.
An affidavit says Faizullah told police he was asleep, his son opened a window and fell. Court documents indicate a witness told police she was outside, heard yelling, then saw a man remove the window screen and toss the toddler out.
The mother retrieved the boy and later allegedly told police he fell at a park. Online records don't list an attorney representing Faizullah. Bond was $30,000. Child Protective Services is investigating.
