Naked, injured and bloody man on drugs lunges at woman pushing stroller, sends baby to the hospital: Cops

Authorities in New Jersey say a man believed to have been under the influence of narcotics was roaming the streets of Atlantic City without any clothes and obviously bleeding.

According to the New York Post, 28-year-old Stephon Whitfield is accused of jumping in front of a woman pushing a stroller and pushing the young child riding inside. The incident reportedly occurred at about 9:30 p.m. on Monday near Caspian Avenue.

From there, the naked man allegedly attempted to force his way into a nearby vehicle to steal cash from inside. Police say Whitfield then made his way to an apartment complex and knocked on a resident’s door in an effort to be let into the unit.
