Police charged a Coralville man after he allegedly threw an object that cut a young child.

The North Liberty police charged Donald Adams, 36, with child endangerment on Feb. 11.

According to police reports, the 7-year-old victim said Adams tossed a “metal cheese can” that struck his head and caused a laceration that required stitches.

Police were questioning the child, who was 5 years old at the time of the incident, as part of a separate investigation.

Adams reportedly lived in the house of the victim’s mother’s boyfriend until recently, and the child had been under his care.

The victim’s mother allegedly said Adams told her the child fell and hit his head on a table. Adams told an officer he threw the can against a wall, and it bounced against the victim’s head, police said.

Child endangerment causing bodily injury is a Class D felony generally punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of up to $7,500.
