Ponca City Police arrested 21-year-old Edwin John Bridgman on Wednesday on complaints of domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in the presence of a child and child abuse.

A non-emergency ambulance was called for a 1-year-old child. The child was transported to Alliance Health Ponca City with non-life-threatening injuries, a police report stated.

Bridgman was convicted after pleading no contest to a felony charge of knowingly concealing stolen property, a felony charge of domestic assault and battery by strangulation, a felony charge of second-degree burglary and a felony charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in August 2015.

He also was convicted in July 2016 after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge of domestic abuse — assault and battery.

A misdemeanor charge of domestic abuse — assault and battery was dismissed in 2013.
