MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Police in New Hampshire say a man has been accused of putting his baby daughter into a clothes dryer and turning on the machine before the mother quickly stopped it.

Police arrested the man in Manchester on Sunday on charges of reckless conduct, endangering the welfare of a child and criminal threatening.

The child did not appear to be injured.  

The man waived arraignment on Monday and a judge ordered him held without bail.

His case has been assigned to a public defender’s office, but no attorney was listed for him in court documents.
