Deland FL (The Weekly Vice) - Jonathan Savas, a 24-year-old Florida man, has been jailed after he allegedly sat on his baby's head because the child wouldn't fall asleep.
According to Deland Police, Savas showed up at a female friend's mobile home Thursday night with his 10-month-old child while looking for a place to stay.
The baby, according to the arrest report, didn't have any clothing on when Savas arrived.
Investigators say Savas then became angry when the baby refused to stop crying and fall asleep. In retaliation, Savas allegedly placed the baby on a couch and sat on his head while the child screamed out in pain.
The female friend tried to intervene, however, Savas told her "It's my baby, I can do what I want."
The female friend reportedly waited until Savas left her residence to report the abuse because she was afraid he would harm her.
When officers caught up with Savas a couple of days later, he reportedly admitted to placing the child faced down on the couch and then placing his leg on top of the baby to force him to go to sleep.
Officers also recovered a hypodermic needle, baggies and a pill container from Savas' backpack.
He was booked into jail and charged with child abuse. His bond has been set at $50,000.
