A North Charleston man is accused of choking a woman and hitting her in the head while she held their infant.

North Charleston police arrested Markevis Deangelo Robinson, 28, of Dobson Street, on Thursday afternoon and charged him with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and unlawful conduct toward a child.

His girlfriend told police that she and Robinson got into an argument about him buying baby formula but it turned physical, according to an incident report. She told investigators that he struck her in the head and choked her while she was holding their baby, the report stated.

She also indicated that Robinson later threw a can of baby formula at her head. The aluminum top of the can hit her left eyebrow causing a laceration, according to the report. The blow caused her to black out while holding the baby, the report said.

Robinson told police that they were both punching each other and that he threw the can at her, but didn’t mean to hit her with it, the report stated.

She was taken to Medical University Hospital. Robinson was taken to Roper Hospital at Northwoods for a possible broken hand.

On Friday afternoon, Robinson was still jailed at the Cannon Detention Center.
