Deland, FL – Police have arrested a man in Florida after they say he sat on his infant’s head because it would not go to sleep.
According to reports, 24-year-old Jonathan Savas showed up at the home of Irene Hossain at the Sha-De-Land mobile home last Thursday night. Hossain told police that he arrived with his 10-month-old son who was wearing no clothes,
When Savas was unable to get his son to go to sleep, Savas placed the child on a couch face-down, then sat on the child’s head while holding him down.
Of course this did not do much aside from have the kid scream and cry hysterically. Hossain told Savas to stop, but Savas replied, “It’s my baby I can do whatever I want.” He did end up stopping and the child was unhurt.
Hossain said she was afraid of Savas and that’s why she did not call police immediately after the incident occurred. Police later found Savas, who is homeless, with a hypodermic needle, baggies and a pill container in his backpack.
When questioned, Savas admitted to putting his kid’s face down on the couch and placing his leg on top of the baby to hold him down in attempt to make the child go to sleep.
He was arrested and charged with child abuse, and is being held at the Volusia County branch jail on $50,000 bail.
