A naked, bleeding man who was high on drugs attacked a 9-month-old baby in a stroller — sending the tot to the hospital — on an Atlantic City street, according to a new report.
Stephon Whitfield, 28, who is shown in a mugshot bleeding from his swollen face, is accused of lunging at the infant as a woman pushed the child near Caspian Avenue at 9:30 p.m. Monday, Atlantic City Police told NJ.com.
The baby was rushed to AtlantiCare Regional Medial Center and treated for non-life-threatening injuries, according to the outlet.
Right before the attack, the unhinged suspect allegedly tried to break into a man’s vehicle and steal money, authorities said.
He was later spotted — also in his birthday suit — banging on an apartment door and demanding to be let in, according to NJ.com.
Whitfield was hit with charges including aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a child and disorderly conduct.
His criminal record includes obstruction, theft and contempt, the paper reported.
