Man randomly slaps child in Central Park

An unhinged man randomly slapped a 7-year-old Manhattan boy walking with his parents in Central Park on Saturday afternoon, police and law enforcement sources said.

The family was taking a stroll near Columbus Circle around 4 p.m., when Kevin Cadelina, 33, allegedly wacked the child in the face and knocked him to the ground, according to cops and the sources.

Cadelina, who police consider “emotionally disturbed,” according to sources, tried to flee the scene — but he was restrained by a family member and other parkgoers until the NYPD arrived.

He was charged with assault and acting in a manner injurious to a child, sources said.

The tough young victim — who lives in Hell’s Kitchen, according to sources — was not injured, cops said.
