Former Pastor Of A Clifton Ukrainian Orthodox Church Accused In Kansas Of Choking Baby


On Thursday, 54-year-old Oleh Zhownirovych, the former pastor of a Clifton Ukrainian Orthodox church, was charged in relation to the choking of a 4-month-old child incident that happened in Kansas.

He had been the pastor at the church but left serving the church in 2015.

According to the police, the cops responded to a report of a man choking a 4-month-old around 7:23 a.m. on Wednesday. Individuals present at the scene held him until the cops arrived there.

It was written in the new release, “The infant was treated at the scene and is expected to be fine.”

The mother and daughter were in a checkout lane when a man suddenly grabbed her baby and started choking her before a security guard and bystanders intervened to save the baby.

According to Sgt. Richard Breshears of the Overland Park, Kan., police, Zhownirovych was taken into custody at a Walmart and charged with aggravated battery.

Quisha Hill, the mother of the baby, told that she didn’t know from where the man came and yanked the car seat that held her baby, telling her he was taking the child.

The man said, “He’s like, ‘I’m taking the baby. I’m stealing her. I’m taking her. Call 911. Call 911.”

Zhownirovych’s bail was set at $100,000 and he is locked up in the Johnson County, Kan., jail on charges of aggravated battery/intentional harm.
