    Man Arrested for Leaving Infant Unattended

    A man was arrested Sunday for leaving his 4-month-old child unattended in Dover, New Hampshire.

    Police say 34-year-old Jeffrey Walter left the infant in an apartment. When officers were trying to find him, they say, he returned to the apartment complex and intentionally drove at a female relative.

    Walter fled when he saw police, who chased him on foot. He was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child, reckless conduct, resisting arrest and driving with an open container.

    Neither the child nor the other relative was injured.

    A probable cause hearing has been scheduled in Dover District Court for Oct. 31.
