Pennsylvania man accused of taunting, punching a man with cerebral palsy arrested

Pennsylvania man faces charges after he mocked and then sucker-punched with a person with cerebral palsy as he left a supermarket.

Barry Baker, 29, of Coatesville, was charged with simple assault after the May 10 incident outside a 7-Eleven in West Chester, Pennsylvania.


Authorities said Baker was caught on video mimicking how a 22-year-old man with cerebral palsy walked from his car into the shop.

When the man came out of the shop, the Bakery continued to mock him and slapped him in the face without warning, according to news station KYW-TV.

“The defendant’s actions in this case are horrible. You wonder what would make an individual treat someone like that,” West Chester police chief Scott Bohn told KYW-TV.
