We’ve learned new details about the man who shoved a two-year-old to the ground, sending her to the hospital.
Jacksonville Police say 20-year-old Devonte Rashad Baker is the toddler’s mother’s boyfriend. He was watching the girl Friday evening when he lost his temper because the toddler wouldn’t stop crying. He shoved her to the ground and she became unresponsive.
Only later, when the little girl’s mother came home, did they take her to get medical attention.
Police did not know how many times in the past the toddler had been left in Baker’s care.
She remains in life threatening condition, on life support.
