CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio — Cuyahoga Falls police arrested a 19-year-old man Wednesday on felony charges for allegedly harming his child.

According to police, Tyler R. Greer is charged with endangering children and felonious assault, both second-degree felonies.

Greer called an ambulance for his 3-month-old child Wednesday afternoon. EMS transported the child to a nearby hospital for treatment, authorities said. The hospital contacted police believing that the child's injuries were suspicious.

Police say Greer told them he had "unreasonably dropped the child multiple times over the course of the past few weeks."

The matter remains under investigation.
