Police: Man wrecks car with infant inside

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A man is facing aggravated assault charges over a wild domestic incident.

A woman refused to stay at the home of her child's father, Bryan Rivera-Alicea, on North Front Street in Allentown after a night out, police said.

The woman called for a ride, and police said Rivera-Alicea confronted the car and then chased after it with his minivan.
