The fight reportedly continued but the child was not injured.

Both suspects have been detained by authorities.

The men are identified as Joel Michael Wilson, 31, and Devon Lee Premer, 22.

The men are being held in the Jefferson County Jail on charges of first-degree assault – extreme indifference, second-degree assault – serious bodily injury, and child abuse.
