A 46-year-old Chicago man is facing two misdemeanor charges after he allegedly beat his girlfriend and her young son, then threw the woman's 8-month-old daughter out the window and ran her over.

Joseph Fults has been charged with misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor domestic battery in the incident, which took place about 2:45 a.m. Monday morning on Chicago's South Side, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Police say Fults and his 23-year-old girlfriend were arguing inside the vehicle when he began to beat the woman and her 7-year-old son. He then threw her baby from the car and ran over the infant as he sped off, NBC Chicago reports.

Both children sustained bruises and were taken to an area hospital, where they were last listed in stable condition. Neither child belongs to Fults, according to the Sun-Times.

Fults was still in jail Tuesday afternoon, with bond set at $100,000.
