TAYLOR, Mich. (WJBK) -- A Wayne co. father whose daughter was reported missing Wednesday and found safe hours later has been charged with domestic assault.

Wayne co. Prosecutor Kym worthy says Toddy Poupard, 41, of Dearborn Heights faces second degree domestic violence. Police say Poupard assaulted his 36-year-old wife while at a Comfort Inn in Taylor early Wednesday morning.

Police arrived on scene in response to a missing child report. Taylor Police Chief Mary Sclabassi says her department's initial investigation, however, shows that Haley Poupard never left the family's Dearborn Heights home.

Poupard was arrested and faces domestic violence second degree charges. He is expected in court Thursday.

Worthy says the child neglect matter remains under investigation by the Taylor police department.
