The family friend had only been left alone with the baby for a few minutes
A Missouri man has been charged with statutory sodomy after the parents of an infant girl walked on him allegedly assaulting the baby while masturbating himself and taking photos.
According to KMBC, Jayson Newlun was staying with friends at their home in Clay County when the couple asked him to look after their 1-year-old girl, who was napping at the time, while they went to the store.
But the parents left something behind and returned home earlier than expected — only about five or ten minutes had passed.
The news station reports that the baby’s mother walked into her bedroom and found Newlun taking photos of the infant, touching her genitals and masturbating.
The woman called her husband in, who then reportedly tackled the suspect, punching him and hitting him with a dresser drawer.
The baby’s mother reportedly called police, and while waiting for them to arrive, asked Newlun why he would hurt their child like that.
Newlun, 26, reportedly said he didn’t know.
When the mother said, “I hope you go down for this,” Newlun replied, “I do too.”
Newlun is currently being held on $250,000 bond. It is not known if he has any previous criminal history.
