STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — A man seemingly jealous of the attention his girlfriend’s child was getting, posted an ad on Craigslist offering to sell the 2-month-old for $100.

According to the NY Post, Paul Marquez, 23, a Victoria’s Secret stock boy, posted two ads for the child under the “Baby and Kids” section, complete with pictures. In broken English, Marquez wrote:

“Heyy I have a 2 month old baby name … 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.”

Craiglist shopper notified police and the NYPD’s computer-crimes unit traced the email’s IP address to Marquez. He was arrested and was held on a $1,000 bail after his arraignment in Staten Island Criminal Court.

No word on if he and his girlfriend are still together.
