Andrew Prioleau, 22, and Kheeyana Marie Allen, 18, were arrested at a home on Juno Court Thursday.

According to arrest warrants, Prioleau pushed, punched, and scratched Allen and then threw bleach and other household chemicals on her. The chemicals also landed on their 1-year-old child.

Allen allegedly also pushed and threw objects at Prioleau, including bleach, which again landed on the child.

The child was given to the care of another family member.
