HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A man has been charged after allegedly leaving a 4-month-old baby with a stranger at a bar in northwest Houston.

The charges against 22-year-old Derrick Johnson Jr. were read out in a probable cause court overnight.

He is accused of abandoning/endangering a child with the intention of returning.

Johnson did not show up for medical reasons when his indictment was read.

According to court documents, Johnson left the child with the stranger at a bar on Alabonson Drive on Wednesday.

Officials released a 2020 mugshot for Johnson.

He also faces two counts of aggravated assault on a family member and assault on a family member with a prior conviction.

Johnson allegedly threatened his mother and the mother of his child with a gun.

In addition to the recent charges, officials said he was already on probation for an act of violence involving the same applicant.

A judge set his bail at a total of $140,000 — $40,000 for both aggravated assault charges and $30,000 each for abandoning/endangering and assaulting a family member with a prior conviction.
