Ah, Florida, you’ve done it again.
Evenaud Julmeus, 30, of Haines City, was arrested Monday after local police found the boy alone in front of the Haines City Police Department, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by ABC News.
According to Bay 9 News, “The boy, whose age was redacted, was dropped off in front of the closed police department with a small duffel bag with several pieces of clothing, according to police. The boy had no food, water, or money with him. An officer dispatched to the location said the boy was very upset and crying. According to the report, the boy told the officer that his father, 30-year-old Evenaud Julmeus, thinks he is gay because his father found him ‘watching male pornography on his cell phone.’”
Julmeus allegedly told the boy before leaving him that “the police will find you a new home.”
Julmeus then allegedly took the boy to the Haines City Police Department, where he is said to have dropped him off on the side of the road in front of the building before heading back home.
Detectives noted that the boy “did not have any food, water or money” or a phone to contact anyone, according to the affidavit.
Police said in the affidavit that the boy’s mother rushed to pick him up when Julmeus returned to their home without him and said the boy was at the police station.
