(THESMOKINGGUN) — Swinging her five-month-old son like a baseball bat, a Florida woman yesterday struck her boyfriend with the infant before dropping the child face first into the sand on Daytona Beach, police charge.
Cops allege that Tatyana Allen, 18, initially hit her 19-year-old beau “several times in the face with a closed hand” before using her baby “as a weapon.” Allen, witnesses said, swung the infant “like a bat” before “the baby was dropped in the sand, face down.”
Allen’s boyfriend, the child’s father, quickly flipped the infant upright since he was unable to turn over on his own. Witnesses told cops that Allen subsequently “snatched” her son from the man’s arms and walked away with the child “dangling,” without his head being supported.
