A man is facing charges after killing a goose and slapping a child.
It happened last week, on July 23, when South Bend Police were called to Leeper Park, after a homeless man slapped a 5-year-old-girl.
The mother of the girl told police that they were riding bikes, when the man, Joshua Rogers, slapped the child twice and knocked her to the ground.
A short time later, police were called again on reports of Rogers decapitating a goose.
WSBT News reports that when officials found Rogers, he was sitting on the body of the goose, with the head nearby.
He was arrested and has a court hearing set for the end of August.
