(CNN) -- A Georgia man allegedly slapped a toddler at a Walmart store because she wouldn't stop crying, authorities said.
Roger Stephens allegedly slapped a stranger's crying toddler in a Walmart store in Stone Mountain, Georgia.





Roger Stephens, 61, was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree cruelty to children. An incident report obtained from police in Gwinnett County indicated Stephens did not know the 2-year-old girl he stands accused of hitting.
The confrontation happened shortly before noon at the Walmart in Stone Mountain, a suburb of Atlanta.
According to the arresting officer, the child's mother said her daughter was crying as they walked down one of the aisles.
The mother said a stranger later identified as Stephens approached them and said, "If you don't shut the baby up, I will shut her up for you." Watch what the stranger said »
A few moments later, while the mother and the crying child were in another aisle, Stephens allegedly grabbed the girl and slapped her across the face.
Police said he hit her four or five times. "See, I told you I would shut her up," the suspect allegedly told the mother.







Authorities described "slight redness" to the toddler's face. Before he was arrested, Stephens apologized to the mother for striking the girl, the incident report said.
Stephens, a Stone Mountain resident, is being held by the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department.

Wow, they can't possibly charge him with enough. Can anyone just imagine what would happen if he did that in front of any respectable adult male.

Problem is any adult male bystander may have thought it was the father and wouldn't have intervened. If the father had been there with the child and mother the coward wouldn't have done what he did.

He looks like the bad guy from "the fugitive".

He should have slapped the mother. The father probably doesn't even exist.

Probably justification for any law-abiding, "carrying", NRA member to open fire on the old man!

"Cleanup - aisle 3 ... and 4 ... and 6! And stop by aisle 12 and grab a butcher knife to do some surgery on aisle 6!".

Plus, in a Wal-Mart, there's usually kids running around bouncing basketballs and swinging baseball bats - THEY could have joined in on the fun, too!

He coulda' just slapped EACH kid ONCE - every woman in a Wal-Mart has at LEAST 4 kids with 'em!

"Wal-Mart - the next best thing to "waterboarding"!"

Regards,
