A former pastor from New Jersey is behind bars after trying to choke a 4-month-old baby belonging to someone he didn’t even know at a Kansas City Walmart.

54-year-old Oleh Zhownirovych purportedly walked up to the woman, who was in a checkout lane early Wednesday, and started choking her baby. When the woman screamed, he stopped.

Fellow customers in the store helped held Mr. Zhownirovych until officers arrived. The baby was uninjured.

He’s been charged with felony aggravated battery and misdemeanor battery.
