An elderly man wanted for slapping a crying toddler in a Surfside Publix supermarket has been arrested, police said.
Jeffrey Feld was arrested early Thursday and was being transported to the Miami-Dade County jail, according to Miami-Dade police.
The man, accused of slapping a 3-year-old girl in the supermarket elevator on May 18, will face battery and child abuse charges. An anonymous tip led authorities to the grumpy old man.
Posters of a sketch of the slap-happy assailant were posted near the super market and throughout surfside.
