A mother on her first outing with her newborn baby has been shocked and terrified when a man reached into her pram and punched her 5-day-old.
Amy Duckers, 27 was shopping when she was approached by a man who overheard family friends saying: "Come and have a look at this beautiful baby."
The man, 63, reached in and punched newborn, Elsie in the head. He then claimed he thought the baby was not real and was a toy.
Ms Duckers, from Manchester was shopping with her baby along with daughter Libby, 7, and partner Lewis Temple, 24.
"The punch was that hard you could have heard the connection as this man hit Elsie," said Mrs Duckers.
"I just can't believe it - especially as it was on a five-day old baby. It was the first time I'd taken Elsie out since she was born. Now I'm just too frightened to take her out again.
"My seven year-old was there and saw everything, and she was just screaming. She thought he'd killed the baby. I don't want anyone to touch Elsie ever again. I literally can't get my head around why someone would do this" she told The Manchester Evening News.
She said she screamed at him and he at first denied he hit the baby then said he thought it was a doll.
Police have arrested the man.
