NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) - A man is behind bars after police said he attacked his child's mother during a birthday party.

Thomas Friedhof II, 30, is charged with one count of felonious assault.

The victim told police she was at her sister's house for a birthday party when Friedhof arrived, looking for their son. He picked the child up and began backing away from the house when the victim said that if he wanted to see his son, he needed to do it the right way.

Friedhof kept trying to leave, and when the mother grabbed for the child, she said Friedhof grabbed her by the hair and threw her to the ground. She got back up and he pushed her again. He then punched the back of her head and kicked her in the back and stomach. The woman says Friedhof also stomped on her and dislocated her shoulder.

The woman grabbed her son and ran off and went home. A friend then took her to the hospital. The boy was not injured.

Police arrested Friedhof and took him to the Hamilton County Detention Center.
