A naked man who was bleeding and under the influence of narcotics assaulted a 9-month-old child Monday in Atlantic City, authorities said.
Stephon Whitfield, 28, moved toward a lady who was pushing a stroller around 9 p.m. and attacked her child, who suffered nonlife-threatening injuries, as indicated by a news discharge.
Police said they were first called to the scene after a report of a naked man beating at the front door of an apartment building. Whitfield had likewise endeavored to get into a man’s vehicle to take his cash, yet he was pushed away, police said.
At the point when officers arrived, they found the suspect bleeding and yelling. What’s more, he had no clothes on, as indicated by the report.
Whitfield was charged with aggravated assault, imperiling the welfare of a child and disorderly conduct. He’s being held at the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
The child was taken to the hospital for treatment.
