A man has been charged with cutting a 4-year-old boy's penis after he arrived at his babysitter's home in tears.
The babysitter says the little lad started crying and shaking when he arrived after being dropped off by his mum's boyfriend in Florida, the US.
She found injuries on the boy's penis, his face, neck, ears and back, and decided to take pictures of them before reporting it to the authorities.
Local media report Mohammad Mahmoud Shaar, 26, from Coconut Creek, Florida, dropped the boy's mum off at work last week, before taking her four-year-old son to a babysitter's home.
The boy was said to be in distress and started sobbing when his mum got out of the car, which is when Shaar allegedly attacked him, reported Local10.com.
According to the arrest report, the babysitter said the boy told her: "Mo did it to him".

Broward Sheriff's Office said the babysitter’s home was only 1.6 miles away from the mother’s place of work, but Shaar took 20 minutes to get there.
The babysitter found bruising and a cut on the boy's penis when he went to the bathroom, and she immediately called his mother and took him to Broward Health Medical Center to be treated.
The four-year-old was then seen by detectives who asked him to demonstrate how he was hit by Shaar.
The report says: "The victim also stated that the defendant pulled his penis and with a clenched jaw and tight fist, exhibited the way in which he was forcibly grabbed in the penile region."
The boy said he was cut on his genitals by Shaar's nails, the investigators added.

Shaar denied abusing the boy and claimed he patting his back as he choked.
He said it was possible that his hand struck the boy's neck, face, and ears during the incident but that he did not intend to harm him.
Shaar also denied touching the boy's penis and claimed that the boy grabbed himself because he had to use the bathroom.
He was arrested on a charge of aggravated child abuse and is being held at the Broward County Main Jail.
