Atlantic City police say a naked man was under the influence of narcotics when he attacked a baby in a stroller.

Police say they found Stephon Whitfield naked, yelling and bleeding while beating on the front door of an apartment building on Caspian Avenue Monday evening. Police say he had approached a woman pushing her 9-month-old child in a stroller and attacked the child.

The baby was treated at a hospital for what police say were not life-threatening injuries.
