NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Staten Island man is accused of trying to sell a 2-month-old baby on Craigslist.
Paul Marquez, 23, posted an ad on the website twice late last month, offering a baby for sale for $100, law enforcement sources said.READ MORE: Mattress Giveaway In Queens Highlights Depth Of Need That Remains 3 Weeks After Ida
The ad read, “I have a 2-month-old baby, she loves to play and have her little fun, but there’s one problem, doctors say she has asthma and if she turns a certain way she can stop breathing. She’s really getting on my nerves and I don’t want her,” WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell reported.
The child is the daughter of a 19-year-old woman Marquez had met online and dated a couple of times, Cornell reported.
