EDMOND, Okla. (KFOR) -- A teenager was arrested on May 24 after he allegedly attacked a baby outside of an Edmond supermarket, blaming the entire hallucination on laced marijuana.

Police worried the drug is floating on their streets and they want to find it as soon as possible.

“He literally just picked up the car seat and threw it with the baby in it,” a 911 caller said. “You could hear the baby screaming.”

A mother rushed over to her 1-year-old son after he was slammed onto the cement.

“Because the car seat bar was up, it protected him,” the mother said.

The 17-year-old tried to bend a parking sign in half with his bare hands.

The suspect then allegedly “exposed himself” and “flipped people off” before stripping his clothes and running through on-coming traffic into a nearby neighborhood.

Officers were hot on the teen’s trail when they found him lying in a driveway and a fight broke out.

Finally in handcuffs, the 17-year-old told paramedics he smoked marijuana earlier that day and believed it may have been laced with LSD or PCP.

A similar incident between Edmond Police and a teenage suspect played out just a little more than a month ago.

Isaiah Lewis was shot and killed by officers after running through backyards naked and breaking into a stranger’s home.

Toxicology reports are not yet released in that case and police aren’t saying if the two incidents are related but they are asking for the public’s help.

“What we have been doing in this investigation is trying to figure out who is distributing this marijuana laced with another drug,” Wagnon said.

The teen was arrested on multiple charges including Aggravated Assault & Battery, Assault on a Police Officer, Indecent Exposure, Public Intoxication, and Malicious Injury or Destruction of Property.
