Carlos Ayala, 37, of Bayonne, was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, criminal mischief, aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, hindering apprehension and throwing bodily fluids at a police officer, according to Police Lt. Janine Foy.
The assault allegedly occurred at a Humphrey Avenue address last night, with police responding to scene at about 8:55 p.m., authorities said.
The girlfriend, 46, and her daughter, 22 months, were both transported to the Bayonne Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries and an update on their condition was not immediately available, officials said.
Bayonne police then apprehended Ayala at the 8th Street Light Rail Station minutes later, approximately 9 p.m., initially giving the officers a fake name, police said.
He then refused to follower the officers commands and resisted being handcuffed by pulling away from the cops, spitting on them before being subdued, authorities said.
Also having an outstanding warrant out of Bayonne Municipal Court, using the alias Carlos Cruz, Ayala was held on $50,000 bail with a 10 percent option, officials said.
