LOWER NAZARETH TWP., Pa. -

A man slugged his girlfriend while she was sitting on the edge of a bed holding their 3 1/2-month-old daughter in her lap, officials said.

Drew B. White II hit his girlfriend on the left side of her face and mouth in their room at the Nazareth Motel, 746 Nazareth Pike, Lower Nazareth Twp., Northampton Co., at about 7:30 p.m. Monday, officials said.

When police met White's girlfriend in the motel parking lot, she also had bruises on her right eye, left forearm and chest, which she said White had caused when he punched and kicked on June 24, officials said.

White, 28, was charged with assault, harassment, making terroristic threats and reckless endangerment and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $25,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. July 11.
