WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP)-- A man was charged with first-degree attempted murder Sunday afternoon after police say he attacked a 2-year-old girl at a hospital in Winston-Salem.

26-year-old Jacob Andrew Minton, of 2750 Shingle Gap Road in Millers Creek, was arrested around 1 p.m. Officers arrested Minton after police said he attacked a 2-year-old girl at Brenner Children's Hospital around 7:30 a.m.

Police said the girl was already being treated for an injury at the hospital before Minton attacked her. Police would not say if the original injury that required treatment was related to the case.

The 2-year-old girl is listed in stable condition at the hospital, although her injuries are considered serious, police said.

Minton has been charged with first-degree attempted murder. He was jailed under a $400,000 bond at the Forsyth County Detention Center.

The suspect is not related to the girl, but is a friend of the child's mother, police said. The child's family lives in Wilkes County.

No other information is currently available.

The investigation is ongoing.
