COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A man is behind bars tonight after Police say he hit his girlfriend's two year old daughter multiple times.

James Blair is charged with cruelty to a child. Blair was babysitting the child when he called the her mother, saying the little girl fell down some stairs. When the mother came home, the two year old's head, neck and face injuries weren't consistent with the story Blair was telling. The mother took the girl to the hospital where doctors agreed that the stories didn't match up. Police were called and Blair was taken into custody.

The child is in the Medical Center recovering tonight. Blair is being held in the Muscogee County Jail on $10,000 bond.
