The newborn, who was not identified, wasn’t physically harmed, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said.

In an Instagram post, Fulop thanked the officer, Eduardo Matute, and published a photo of him holding the baby.

The incident began Saturday morning in Jersey City, with a report of an unidentified man “dangling” the newborn over a balcony, a Jersey City spokeswoman told NJ Advance Media.

Officers negotiated with the man and set up a perimeter, Fulop said. The man was arrested after he threw the baby, NJ Advance Media reported.

It wasn’t immediately clear what charges he faces. Other details about the incident weren’t available.
