WEST CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) — A man accused of sucker punching another man with cerebral palsy has been arrested.
The Chester Sheriff’s Office tells Eyewitness News 29-year-old Barry Baker has been captured after being on the run for several weeks.
In a video that even seasoned members of law enforcement say is difficult to watch, a man with cerebral palsy is minding his own business outside a West Chester 7-Eleven, when police say Baker mocked and then clocked the man in the face.
“This is so blatant and so absolutely repulsive to anybody who sees if,” Chester County Sheriff Carolyn “Bunny” Welch told Eyewitness News.
Baker has a long criminal past. He pleaded guilty to stealing metal flag holders from veterans’ graves at Chester County cemeteries. He sold them to a scrap metal company.
