Tomyl Manning, 27, was arrested Saturday on counts of domestic abuse battery and child cruelty.

A Baton Rouge man, accused of beating his girlfriend and shoving their child into a dresser, was arrested Saturday for the second time on a count of domestic abuse.

Tomyl Manning, 27, got into an argument Thursday with his child’s mother and live-in girlfriend over child support when he began hitting her, according to a Baton Rouge police report.

Their three-year-old child tried to intervene, and Manning pushed him against a dresser, giving him a busted lip and black eye, the report says.

During the struggle, the woman fell to the floor and Manning began punching her in the head and body, according to the report. His girlfriend managed to grab a small knife and stabbed Manning several times until he stopped hitting her and left the house, the report says.

Manning, of 3418 Dalton Drive, was booked into Parish Prison on counts of domestic abuse battery with child endangerment and cruelty to a juvenile.

He had been arrested in November 2014 for domestic abuse against the same woman.
