A Florida woman was arrested and charged with allegedly using her 6-month-old baby to bludgeon her boyfriend and then throwing the baby to the ground during a fight Monday in Daytona Beach.
Police said they received numerous 911 calls from witnesses who said they saw Tatyana Allen, 18, of Ocoee, swinging the baby “like a bat” during the altercation. The baby is the couple's 6-month old son.
The witnesses also told law enforcement officers that they saw Allen punch her boyfriend several times in the face before swinging and throwing the baby at him.
Allen later threw the baby face first into the sand, the report said.
Allen also hit the baby’s head against the railing of a set of stairs while walking to the boardwalk, officers said.
The mother has been taken into custody on charges of battery and infliction of physical/mental injury on a child. It is uncertain whether Allen has an attorney.
