HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A central Pennsylvania man is in custody after police say he tried to sell his infant son in a shopping center parking lot.

Forty-year-old Jermaine Williams is being held at Dauphin County prison on charges of dealing in infant children and child endangerment.

Investigators say the Harrisburg man tried to sell his infant son in the parking lot of a Susquehanna Township shopping center on Friday morning.

Police say Williams approached a woman, asked her for money then tried to hand her the baby. Authorities say Williams also approached other people.

Williams is being held on $75,000 bail. Online court records don’t list an attorney for him.
