63 year old man punches new born baby on the face

David Hardy from Manchester 63 year old man punched a baby's face at Tesco store.

 He claimed after he was arrested  and charged to court that he thought the baby was a doll.

Mirror gathered he  approached five-day-old Elsie Temple as she lay in her carry cot inside a shopping trolley then thumped her as the youngster's mother Amy Duckers looked on in horror.

The baby was  taken to hospital with a red mark to her face. She was kept in for seven hours before being allowed home.

His trial has been slated for next month. He pleaded not guilty to the charge of common assault but admitted throwing a punch.The mother of the baby told the court that was her first time of taking the baby out after birth.

She noted that they saw a neighbour who worked there and began speaking about the baby when Hardy approached.

As Ms Duckers later told friends in a social media post, her baby was then hit in the face by Hardy, who she described as 'very sick' and 'not well'.

Elsie was rushed to Wythenshawe Hospital, arriving at around 9pm, and was kept in until 4am the next day.

Defence lawyer Chris Fallows told the hearing: 'This is an extremely unusual case. This defendant effectively a family man who has young children in the family and does not behave in a way that is suggested to this allegation.
Ms Ducker went on Facebook talking about the hurt the incidence has brought and how torn she is from the incidence.

Hardy has been bailed  ahead of his trial.
