Man Who Was Upset Girlfriend Didn’t Abort Allegedly Beats Daughter Into Coma on Father’s Day

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — A Brooklyn man who had expressed hatred toward his girlfriend for not obtaining an abortion is accused of beating his infant daughter into a coma on Father’s Day.

Shaquan Taylor, 19, had posted on social media in February of last year that he felt “disrespected” when his girlfriend told him that she planned on keeping their baby.

“Told that lil [expletive] to get abortion [and] she tells me she is but still [going to] keep it. Exactly why I hate that lil [expletive],” he wrote.

“I don’t want nothing to do with her,” he exclaimed in another post. “I dead didn’t even want to have a baby by her [and] it’s sad to say, but [expletive] happens and it happened, but whatever.”

Taylor’s girlfriend, Tammy Lewis, now 16, gave birth to a girl around the time of his posts, who she named Nylah. She and Taylor had a rough relationship going forward, although she said she desired to have him be a part of their child’s life.

Last Sunday, Father’s Day, Taylor had Nylah in his possession at his apartment when he sent a message to Lewis to advise that there was a problem and that she needed to come and get the baby.

According to reports, when Lewis arrived, she found the baby bruised and struggling to breathe, and began to rush her out of the building, calling 911. But Taylor then allegedly struck Lewis and she and the baby both fell to the ground.

Lewis handed the child off to a friend, who then gave the 16-month-old baby to paramedics upon their arrival.

Taylor continued to beat Lewis as she tried to leave, and then hid in the bushes following the assault, according to police.

When police captured Taylor following a chase, he first claimed that baby Nylah had fallen off the bed, but then changed his story to assert that she fell off the toilet. However, investigators concluded that the child’s injuries were not consistent with a fall.

Nylah was treated for bleeding on the brain and multiple skull fractures, as well as a black eye. She also required a blood transfusion, and doctors have been concerned that perhaps the child might not survive. As of press time, Nylah has continued to fight, but remains in critical condition in a coma.

Taylor was taken into custody—spending his 19th birthday in jail—and has been charged with felony assault and endangering a child under 17. He has also been charged for beating the child’s mother, and is currently being held on $250,000 bail.

According to the Daily Mail, Taylor had been charged with sexual misconduct in 2015 because Lewis was only 14 at the time he was having sexual relations with her. He was arrested again last year for harassing her, and a protective order was issued three months later.

“He said that about a year ago he was going to hit the baby if she brought [her] around,” Lewis’ sister, Christine Munford, told reporters. “And [on Sunday] he threatened her and said he was going to punch her in the face when she got there. And then obviously that happened.”

    I probably am not supposed to say this but, he needs to be executed, quick, fast and in a hurry.

      It is completely appropriate to say. Governments have the God given authority and responsibility to execute such persons, but sadly, his hatred for and desire to murder babies is shared widely and protected, even funded by the government.

    He should be either castrated or executed so he can never inflict such an evil act on any child ever again, his own or anyone else. Let’s all agree to pray the Lord heal this little baby and that she fully recovers with no adverse effects whatsoever.

    Typical pattern when the mother is so focussed on nurturing the child. The father wants the attention of his wife (sexually and emotionally).

    She is devoted to raising that child that it interfered with the relationship.

    Sadly, his pattern is clear. Sadly, fornication opened the door for this as well. The mother was just a sex object to him. SO what does he do?

    He views the child as competition for attention and does the most disgusting thing in the world.

    I could be wrong.

      They weren’t married. She was only 14 when she got pregnant but yeah, he viewed the child as a burden and possibly as competition.

    not sure if the picture above is this child or not …. but what a cutie …….. and not the tangerine kind of cutie …………

    • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      That’s her.

    So sad. The baby should never have been left at her father’s care in the first place. Boys should be educated to live to honor God and to protect women and children, or they grow to harm or exploit women and children. Girls should be educated to live to honor God and to be chaste and to cherish children over any others.

    It is with sad news that this little angel has returned to God after succumbing to her injuries. Please say a prayer for all children and their parents.

    Big man, tough guy for sure. May God Almighty bring healing and full recovery to this precious little child and help her momma to distance herself from the wicked, now…

  • FoJC

    Monsters murdering babies in the womb and monsters beating them outside the womb. I can’t wrap my head around the idea of doing harm to a child. This is baffling to say the least, and, sadly, stuff like this is happening all the time in our “civilized society”.

    Come LORD Jesus, come!
