Roger Stephens, a 61-year-old man from Stone Mountain, GA, got annoyed with a crying 2-year-old, and slapped the girl at least four times.

 

Authorities say the girl and her mother were shopping Monday when the toddler began crying. The police report says Stephens approached the mother and said, “If you don’t shut that baby up, I will shut her up for you.”

 

Authorities say Stephens then grabbed the 2-year-old and slapped her. The child began screaming and Stephens was arrested. Police say an examination showed the girl’s face was slightly red.

 

Stephens said to the mother, “See, I told you I would shut her up.”  He’s being charged with felony cruelty to children.
