A 61-year old man slapped a woman's 2-year-old girl four times in a Walmart store in Atlanta, Georgia.

The man, identified as Roger Stephens, reportedly told the mother If you don't shut the baby up, I will shut her up for you, CNN reports.

Since the toddler continued crying he grabbed her and slapped her and then told the mother, See I told you I would shut her up, CNN reported.

Stephens was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree cruelty to children.
