“He just came over to the side where my trailer is and threw the baby over the fence into my other neighbor’s yard,” Reaves said.
After that, for some reason, Harris took off all his clothes, Reaves said.
“My neighbor said when he saw (Harris), he was in a pair of shorts, and then all of a sudden, he saw him sitting on the trashcan and by then had had no clothes on,” he said. “I’m just more bewildered about what was going through his mind to make him do something like that.”
The child received lacerations to its body and extremities, but was not seriously injured, investigators said.
Harris was arrested by Longwood police and charged with cruelty toward a child/aggravated child abuse, battery on an officer or firefighter and resisting an officer with violence.
He is being held without bail at the Seminole County Jail.
