Someone else's crying kid can be annoying, but one man in Surfside took the matter into his own hands and now police are looking to get their hands on him.
The unidentified man allegedly grabbed, then slapped a 3-year-old girl for crying loudly while they were in a grocery store elevator earlier this month.
The grumpy old man then bolted out of the elevator and away from store employees as the mom frantically tried to explain what happened, surveillance video taken just after the incident shows. "He just went and grabbed at her face. And she says that her skin hurt from it. He just grabbed at her face, and he wouldn't take his hand off,"the child's mom told WSVN. The mom's other daughter, who was also in the elevator, was not attacked. The video doesn't show a good picture of the man's face, but police have put up flyers looking for the vigilante disciplinarian.
The suspect is described as a man in his 50s with a wrinkly, tanned face. He is around 6'3 and weighs about 180 pounds.
If you have information about the incident, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
Mom should have maced/tasered the jerk.
“The suspect is described as a man in his 50s with a wrinkly, tanned face. He is around 6’3 and weighs about 180 pounds.”
This didn’t happen in FL, did it?
That’s a good way to get your ass handed to you in some places.
Not excusing the grumpy old man, by any means.
First, what grocery store has an elevator?
Second, did Mom apologize or try to hush the toddler at all?
If a guy assaulted my daughter in an elevator, he’d be lucky to get out of the elevator without being shot.
Heh heh heh....
Ditto. Anyone who lays hands on Baby Chan without my permission had better have paid-up burial insurance. No kidding.
Fussy kids are worse than barking dogs. Parents, curb your kid.
Sometimes a mother just cannot “hush” a toddler. I doesn’t work that way.
Did the kid shut up?
It's in Miami, so the elevator is probably for all the little rascals in their Little Rascals.
Oh shoot! I forgot to send in that bill!
That's why they shouldn't be inflicted on the general public. Children, small dogs, and liberals should be kept at home, where they can't cause problems.
That said, touch one of my grandkids, and the grumpy old man would have to unbutton his fly to see where he was going.
Anyone want to bet alcohol was involved?
Heavy boot, old drunk’s ass, some assembly required.
We had an incident like this in Lubbock a few years ago. A 68 year old man with a phenomenally loud voice started screaming at a 4 year old for not getting out of his way at a local video store. The child burst into tears and the old bastage started laughing and taunting her. The clerk and some bystanders intervened, at which point the offender pulled rank. He was a professor of human services, alcohol counseling in fact, and was falling down drunk. The police were not impressed with his august position and threw him in jail.
WTF? People need to learn to control their brat kids. Why should the public at large have to listen to their whining and mewling and general misbehaviour?
Kids cry. Part of life.
(But yes, it is annoying).
