Man Punches Baby in Face During Thwarted Kidnapping

In this morning's roundup of crime: A man punched a baby in an attempt to kidnap it and left it with fractured bones; a security guard runs over a "suspicious" man with a golf cart; another baby thought to have been kidnapped in Tennessee is found in Miami-Dade; and Cuban political prisoners arrive in Spain.

Anthony Williams has been arrested after trying to kidnap a 4-month-old baby. The crime happened around Quail Roost Drive and 125th Avenue in South Miami-Dade around 10:45 a.m. Sunday.

The child was with its mother when Williams punched it twice in the face and tried to run away with it. The baby suffered two fractured clavicles and facial injuries.

Williams is being held on $20,000 bond and is charged with aggravated child abuse and attempted kidnapping. [WSVN]
