Florida man to police: 'Devil' made him cut child

Ricardo Darren Dor arrested on several charges

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – A Florida man said "the devil" made him act out during a dispute that began as an argument with his grandmother over a TV remote control and ended with a 3-year-old child being cut on the lip with a knife, according to police.

A Boynton Beach police report said Ricardo Darren Dor, 24, was arrested on charges of aggravated child abuse, battery on a person over 65 and domestic battery on a pregnant person.

Investigators said Dor pushed his grandmother to the floor, chased his pregnant cousin and then used a kitchen knife to slash through a window screen, cutting the lip of a child standing on a couch.

Dor told police he snapped because people in the house were mean to him.

An attorney for Dor isn't listed on records.
