St. Peters Man Charged with Assaulting Wife, Daughter

Timothy J. Davenport also is charged with endangering a child.

A man was charged Wednesday with domestic assault and endangering the welfare a child.

said in a report that Timothy Davenport, 42, of St. Peters, was drunk when while arguing with his wife, and he began spitting in her face to provoke a fight.

His wife told police she pushed him away and begged him to leave her alone. Davenport responded by pushing her down, holding her down and punching her in the face.

The couple’s daughter, under age 17, told police she hit her father to distract him from his mother and to defend her. Davenport retaliated by pushing her to the ground multiple times, pulling her hair and punching her in the face.
