A couple from Missouri thought they could spare a few minutes to run to the grocery store and pick up a few things having left their one year old baby girl under the care of a trusted family friend. Little did they expect the horrifying sight they would come across when they returned home.
On June 29, 2017, Jayson Newlun, 26, was left to babysit his close friends’ baby girl. The child’s parents needed to get some things from the grocery store. Seeing as Newlun was a close friend of the couple and he had actually spent the previous night at the house, they asked him to watch their baby as the dashed out for a few minutes.
A couple of moments after they left, the mother realized she had forgotten something at home and so they were forced to turn back.
Went they got home, the child’s mom noticed Newlun was not on the couch where they had just left him and her daughter’s bedroom door was open.
The mom walked into the child’s room only to find Newlun touching himself inappropriately while touching the baby’s genitals. He was also taking inappropriate photos.
Horrified, the mom immediately called the police. The child’s dad, however, was a different matter.
He was very enraged he hit Newlun with a dresser drawer, tackled him to the ground and punched him several times. A neighbor had to step in to stop the father from continuing to attack Newlun.
The mother told police while she was waiting for officers to arrive, she asked him why he would do something like this to an innocent baby. Newlun reportedly said that he didn’t know, before agreeing that he deserved a harsh punishment. She reportedly told him ‘I hope you go down for this.’ He replied ‘I do, too.’
Jayson Newlun was arrested and had his bond set at $250,000. He was later charged with first-degree statutory sodomy.
This was truly a dreadful scene for the parents to walk in on, but thank God they came back in time. Who knows what this man could have done to the poor baby.
Parents, please take extreme caution and be sure of who you are leaving your children with.
