Richard Wagner, the Selinsgrove man charged with assault, hurt the baby after he threw his wedding ring during a fight with the baby’s mother, according to the criminal complaint seen by the Orange Street News.

“The defendant did during a verbal argument with his wife, he did throw a ring at his wife who was holding the victim in her arms. The ring struck the victim on the left eye: causing injury to the victim’s eye and area around eye,” the complaint read.

In the Affidavit of Probable Cause it read that when the officer arrived at the S Market Street Apartment they “saw an infant ….had cuts and bruises to his injured eye. The infant was crying and was attempting to rub the injured eye. The infant was obviously in distress because of the injuries he received.”

The statement said the argument began after the wife said she wanted a divorce. “He took the ring off his left finger and threw it in her direction. He said when she flinched at the incoming ring, she struck his son’s face.”

The OSN is not saying the name of the wife or the baby.

No OSN is trying to get Wagner’s side of the story. No one answered the door at Wagner’s apartment.

In September Wagner was profiled by a local paper after the Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way had him speak at a fundraiser as a young teen father who received help.

Sources told the OSN that the baby is expected to make a full recovery.

A hearing will be held Monday, November 28th at 3pm at District Court. Wagner is charged with Aggravated Assault, Simple Assault and Recklessly Endangering Another Person.
