A Grand Forks man was charged Tuesday with felonious restraint, child neglect and assault.

Dylan Ray Demery, 20, allegedly began arguing with a woman he knew about 9:30 p.m. Oct. 31 after drinking the alcoholic beverage Four Loko.

Court documents said he pushed the woman onto the couch and got on top of her to hold her down while he pressed his knee against her face. The woman's lip was swollen when police arrived and she had blood on her face, shirt and hands, an affidavit for Demery's arrest said.

He followed her to the bathroom as she attempted to clean her face and then into a baby's bedroom, court documents said. Demery allegedly forced her to the floor and held her down.

The woman told police she was unable to get away and care for her newborn baby, who was left unattended in her bedroom while Demery allegedly attacked her.

The affidavit said Demery jumped from a third-floor window before police arrived.

Demery could face five years for each felony charge of restraint and child neglect.
