STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- A total stranger is accused of slapping a fussy 2-year-old in a Wal-Mart in Stone Mountain.

Authorities say the girl and her mother were shopping at Wal-Mart on Tuesday morning when the toddler began to cry.

Roger Stephens, 61, approached the mother and told her, "If you don't shut that baby up, I will shut her up for you."

Moments later, Stephens grabbed the 2-year-old girl and slapped her at least four times and told the mother, "See, I told you I would shut her up."

The child began screaming and Stephens walked away.

Another shopper stopped Stephens until store security arrived.

Police say an examination showed the girl sustained slight redness to the face.

Stephens was jailed without bond on several charges including felony cruelty to children.
