DES MOINES, Iowa — An Oskaloosa man was arrested Wednesday after allegedly assaulting a 10-month-old infant.

Richard Samuel Grylls, 35, was arrested without incident at his Oskaloosa home on charges of assault and child endangerment causing injury against a non-relative infant.

The charges against Grylls resulted from an investigation by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) Major Crime Unit and the Oskaloosa Police Department. The investigation started Oct. 16, when a 10-month old was brought to the Mahaska County Hospital with multiple injuries.

The child is expected to make a full recovery, according t a statement released Thursday by the DCI.

Grylls is currently held in the Mahaska County Jail without bond.

Grylls’ prior convictions include a conviction for willful injury causing bodily injury in 2005 in Warren County District Court, for first-offense domestic abuse assault in 2015 in Polk County District Court and for child endangerment causing bodily injury and second offense-domestic abuse assault in 2016 in Polk County District Court.

*A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
