Lady Lake, FL (December 24, 2018) – Police say that a battle broke out between a woman and her baby’s father over the baby at the Cove Apartments in Lady Lake. This led to domestic battery charges.

Police were called to the apartments one morning this week after the mother of a 10-month-old and her baby’s father, 25-year-old Naquan Crawford, got into an altercation with one another. The woman suffered from a busted lip during the altercation, which was broken up by the baby’s grandmother.

Crawford quickly fled the apartment and was then caught by police about an hour later after he was spotted outside. Police booked him in prison with domestic battery charges.

Police also contacted the Department of Children and Families due to the altercation.
