OCALA, Fla. — Police in Florida say a 24-year-old man is accused of aggravated domestic battery after trying to circumcise his 20-month-old nephew.

According to police, the child was bleeding when the father returned. Larry Leroy Floyd told the father he circumcised the boy. Floyd left the apartment and the father took his child to a hospital. His condition was not available.
Floyd remained in jail Monday morning. It wasn’t known whether he has an attorney.
