Utica teen on bath salts said he wanted to eat blood and babies

A Utica teen who used bath salts, and other drugs, said he wanted to rip apart and eat babies.

Police in Utica say they responded to a report of an emotionally disturbed person in the 200 block of North Genesee Street around 7:17 p.m.

Police say that when officers arrived, they talked to a man who was sitting on a bench with his 18-year-old son.

The man told police that his son was hearing voices and said he wanted to rip apart babies and eat them. The teen had cut the back of his leg to taste his own blood because he said he likes the taste.

The man told police that his son had used bath salts two days ago. Within the last seven days, he had taken cocaine, acid, angel dust, and LSD in addition to the bath salts.

The teen was taken in to custody and taken to St. Luke's Hospital for a mental health evaluation.
