Man Attempts To Sell Girlfriend’s Baby On Craigslist

ClA former Victoria’s Secret stock boy, miffed that his girlfriend wasn’t paying attention to him, decided to get back at her by trying to sell her 2-month-old daughter on Craigslist — and someone even called offering to buy the infant, authorities said today.

“Heyy I have a 2 month old baby … she loves to play nd have her little fun but there is only 1 problem, the doctor said that she has asthma nd if she turns a certain way she can stop breathing, she’s really getting on my nerves nd I don’t want her Please email me,” 23-year-old suspect Paul Marquez allegedly wrote in one ad posted under Craigslist’s “Baby and Kids’’ category last week.

 The twisted Staten Island perp — who even also posted photos of the baby — was offering to sell her for $100, sources said.

“Marquez had been chatting with the child’s mother online, and the two had been out a few times,” said a law-enforcement source.

“He was apparently upset she wouldn’t pay him more attention and posted the two ads as revenge,” the source said, adding, “[The mom] didn’t have time for him. She was working all the time.”

Marquez had put his phone number on one of the two ads — posted last Monday and Tuesday — and at least one person responded, sources said. The suspect then gave the person the baby’s mom’s number.

“That person then called mom and did in fact offer to buy the child,” a source said.

But two stunned Craigslist shoppers also noticed the postings and immediately contacted the new 121st Police Precinct on Staten Island, sources said.

The NYPD’s computer-crimes unit then traced the e-mail’s IP address to Marquez, who was promptly arrested Thursday, sources said.

The city’s Administration for Children’s Services was also notified about the case, sources said.

Marquez, who has two prior arrests for petit larceny, was charged with authority to place or board out children, aggravated harassment and endangering the welfare of a child, according to Staten Island DA Daniel Donovan.

Marquez was being held on $1,000 bail after his arraignment in Staten Island Criminal Court.

His mom, Concepcion, whom Marquez called right after his arrest, refused to comment today.

His Legal Aid lawyer, Tamara Giwa, did not return a call for comment.

A worker at Victoria’s Secret in the Staten Mall, where Marquez had worked, said he was no longer an employee there.

In 2007 and 2008, Marquez was busted on the larceny raps and pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in both cases. He was given a conditional discharge and several days of community service.

      Men are crazy. After all, they commit nearly ALL of the violent crime in the world. We are just hearing more about because of technological advances.

      stuff like this is ridiculous..
      LOL at this man’s mother’s name, smh

      funny how after just 5 years of being independent from your own mothers care, you demand more attention from your girlfriend by taking away something she loves and showing complete disregard for the infant’s future.
      pathetic. is everyone’s purpose to cater to and spend time with you? men more and more are revealing themselves as the weaker sex. seriously, whats next? what a leech.

    Do people forget about the law? Do they live in their own world?

    I’m just trying to figure out the timeline. How do you end up kickin’ it with a woman who JUST gave birth to another man’s child? They’re both crazy.

      that’s the thing i can never figure out with these situations , like, where’s the baby daddy? gone already?

        @lol yeah I am curious too about the baby daddy where is he in all of this?

      @ Luci… I was thinking the same thing!!!! If i just gave birth I wouldn’t want a new man around my child! I pray for this young woman that she will now be picky!!!

      Here we go again blaming a woman for daring to date anyone after having a child. The father could be dead or he could have clocked out of daddyhood the moment the (+) showed up.

      She’s allowed to date when she thinks she’s comfortable to date.

      Anyone can meet a seemingly normal person and have that person turn out to be crazy.

        No, people are concerned that she had the new boyfriend around her newborn baby so quickly. We doubt she spent much time vetting him before allowing him to be around her child. Let’s not act like some women aren’t so desperate that they allow anyone around their kids.

    This is rich. Men cannot claim superiority over women after working so hard to insure there was no level playing field for men and women. The 1950’s called and they want their gender stereotypes back.

    @ImJustSyaing I couldn’t agree more! the attacks on the mother are baseless. There’s no indication that she had that man around her baby. She met a new guy and spent some time with him…“Marquez had been chatting with the child’s mother online, and the two had been out a few times”. How is she at fault for the situation @SayWhat?
