LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Police say a Louisville man was arrested on Tuesday for charges stemming from an incident in February.

According to reports, Jason Johnson, 23, is charged with assault in the fourth degree, wanton endangerment, terrorist threatening and intimidating a participant in the legal process.

On February 19th, Johnson allegedly called his baby's mother, Amanda Brundage, repeatedly, telling her to come home from work to take care of the one-month-old child or he would hurt the child. Police say Johnson also threatened to kill Brundage if she took the baby to her mother's home.

According to police, Johnson threw a highchair at Brundage, hitting her in the stomach and threw a picture frame that put a hole in the wall. Allegedly, he then charged at her while she was breastfeeding the child and began choking her. Brundage managed to kick at Johnson in order to get him off of her and she managed to call 911.

Police say Johnson fled the scene but was taken into custody on Tuesday, March 5th.
