HAINES CITY, Fla. (WFLA) Police said 30-year-old Evenaud Julmeus was arrested Sunday after he reportedly ditched a child on the side of the road because he thought the child was gay.

According to WFLA, The Haines City Police Department arrested Julmeus Sunday evening after finding the boy outside the police station crying and holding a duffel bag with several clothes inside.

The police report does not specify the exact relationship between Julmeus and the boy.

WFLA said the boy told the officer that after a verbal argument, Julmeus told him to pack his bags and get in the car. Julmeus then drove the boy to a turn lane on Highway 27 near the Haines City Police Department. The boy said Julmeus ordered him to get out and told him, "Police will find you a new home."

The woman then left the house to go find her son.

Julmeus was arrested and charged with child neglect.
