Police Sketch Slap-Happy Grumpy Old Man

Man is accused of attacking a crying toddler in a grocery store elevator

Disciplining spoiled, crying little brats is a tough job, but that doesn't mean you have to take up the crusade.

Case in point, the Surfside Slapper - a grumpy old man who attacked a little girl in a Publix Supermarket elevator because she wouldn't stop crying.

Police released a sketch of the man, who fled the store after the alleged attack. The suspect is described as a man in his 50s with a wrinkly, tanned face. He is around 6'3 and weighs about 180 pounds.

The child's mother wants justice for what happened to her whining child. Posters of the sketch have been put up all over town trying to find this disciplining menace with a short fuse for children. If caught, the man would face child abuse and simple battery charges.

Some would say he deserves a medal.

If you have information about the incident, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
