Naked, bleeding man assaults baby in Atlantic City: police

A naked man who was bleeding and under the influence of narcotics randomly attacked a 9-month-old baby Monday in Atlantic City, authorities said.

Stephon Whitfield, 28, approached a woman who was pushing a stroller around 9 p.m. and assaulted her baby, who suffered nonlife-threatening injuries, according to a news release.

Police said they were first called to the scene after a report of a nude man beating at the front door of an apartment building. Whitfield had also tried to get into a man’s car to steal his money, but he was pushed away, police said.

When officers arrived, they found the suspect bleeding and yelling. And he had no clothes on, according to the report.

Whitfield was charged with aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a child and disorderly conduct. He’s being held at the Atlantic County Justice Facility.

The infant was taken to the hospital for treatment.
