A Florida man was arrested on Saturday night after he allegedly tried to circumcise his 20-month-old nephew with a kitchen knife.
Larry Leroy Floyd, 24, of Ocala was charged with domestic aggravated battery, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Police say the young boy’s father had gone out to the grocery store and left his son in the care of his two brothers-in-law, the Ocala Star-Banner reports.
When the father returned, he found his son bleeding. Floyd reportedly told him he had circumcised the child, authorities say.
The father immediately rushed his son to the hospital. Meanwhile, officers picked up Floyd. He remained in jail as of Monday morning, according to the Star-Banner.
The 24-year-old has a history of arrests, including domestic violence, armed robbery and drug possession, the Sentinel reports.
The boy’s condition is not known.
