PASADENA, Texas -

A Pasadena man is facing charges after a child was hurt as a result of an altercation Sunday on the 900 block of Harris Avenue in Pasadena.

Kenneth White Robinson, 21, is charged with injury to a child under 15.

Authorities say Robinson was in a large group of people when he started fighting another man.

Robinson broke a beer bottle over the man's head, according to the Pasadena Police Department. 

That's when the bottle hit a 3-year-old girl in the face and cut her below the eye. She was transported to the Bay Shore Medical Center and the wound required stitches, according to police.

Authorities say the injured girl is the niece of Robinson's wife.

Robinson has a previous charge of assault of a family member and possession of marijuana. 

He is being held in the Harris County Jail on $5,000 bond.
