Florida Dad Abandoned Child on Roadside for Watching Gay Porn

Police in Florida say they’ve arrested a man who abandoned a child on the side of the road because he thought the boy might be gay.

Details of the incident are sketchy, with police withholding some information to protect the privacy of the victim, who they say is a preteen. There are also some inconsistencies in reporting, with some outlets claiming the man was the child’s father and others labeling him simply “a relative.” 

According to police, Evenaud Julmeus of Haines City caught the boy watching gay porn on his phone over the weekend and became upset. Julmeus ordered the child to pack a duffel bag with a few items of clothing and then bundled him into a car and drove to a closed police station. 

There, he ordered the boy out of the car, telling him the police would find him a new family.  

Julmeus did not contact law enforcement officials with the Haines City Police Department to let them know that there was a child in need of help outside the station, but a bystander witnessed the distraught boy leaving the car before Julmeus drove off. That person called police, who arrived to collect the boy. 

According to court records cited by the New York Post, the boy was left at “a closed police department with no one around, failing or omitting to provide the victim with care, supervision and services necessary to maintain physical or mental health while also failing to make a reasonable effort to protect the victim from abuse, neglect or exploitation of others.” 

When he returned home, Julmeus revealed the boy’s location to his mother. She left two other children at home in Julmeus’ care and went to retrieve her son. According to police, Julmeus fled after she left the home, leaving the two children unsupervised. The ages of those children have not been disclosed. 

Julmeus eventually turned himself in Sunday evening. He was arrested and charged with three counts of negligent child abuse.
