Creepy 'Spawn From Hell' Cryptid Baby Encountered in Bucks County, Pennsylvania

A teen girl observes, what she first believes is, a human baby crawling across the street in front of her. She soon realizes that this may be something else and quite disturbing.

I was going through a few boxes of documents that I had placed in storage during my move in 2016. I found a bunch of printouts I had made of emails that were sent to me not long before I started the Phantoms & Monsters blog. Most were fairly mundane, but one was quite interesting. In fact, I remembered when I first read it but didn't know what to make of it. I don't recall if I ever contacted the witness. But anyway, I'm offering it to you:

"Before I begin, I would like to say I am actually a skeptic and try to rationalize what I feel is not rational. That being said, most, if not all of my first-hand odd experiences occurred before I was an adult. What I remember of this incident is still quite vivid. I am simply looking for the truth, so I hope you understand that what I am about to share is 100% factual, not embellished in the slightest. I hope you or someone else can shed some light on what I actually saw here.

Back in 1990, I was a 16-year-old high school kid and athlete, with a normal middle-class family living in a suburban middle-class neighborhood in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. I remember it being in Autumn because there were leaves all over the ground and the crisp air is still fresh in my memory. I had just finished hanging out at a friend's house just down the road from mine. It was about 7 PM or so as it was dusk, about the time the streetlights started to come on. The neighborhood I lived in was a medium-sized development built just after WWII. Everyone knew everyone, and traffic was light due to the road ending at the edge of the woods.

As I was walking home I noticed something dash out of the bushes on the left side of the road. It moved rather quickly, but strangely. My first instinct was that it was an injured dog, possibly hit by a car and dragging its hind legs. Even though it was still far ahead of me, it startled me and I stopped dead in my tracks. As I did so, it stopped in the middle of the road. I then got a very good look at it. It was a human baby. I remember thinking, 'How the hell did this baby manage to crawl out of a house and into the middle of the road?'

I started to quickly make my way towards it to get it off the street. I remember being panicked, but somewhat amused and bewildered as I trotted towards it. As I got nearer, I started to realize that what I was running towards, and what I was looking at, was not a normal 'baby.' At least that was what I thought just before I suddenly froze. The 'baby' snapped its head around and, with its weird empty eyes, stared at me with a maniacal grin. I just looked at it, waiting for its next move. At the same time, I was thinking I'd better haul off in the opposite direction. I backed off several feet but continued to watch this aberration. It was about the size of a 1-year-old child, but naked and totally hairless. It had muscular arms and weird short legs that dragged behind it. It also looked wet and shiny, like a glaze or thick oil was put on it.

After several seconds, it quickly scurried away with its stumpy legs dragging back and forth behind it. It crossed the street, then through the yard of a house, but quickly disappeared. I figured it made its way into the woods behind the house. I stood there motionless and shocked. In fact, I leaned against a mailbox post until I regained my composure. When I did, I felt like I needed to get home as soon as possible and sprinted in that direction. When I got home, I went directly into my room. I didn't even eat dinner and told my mom that I wasn't feeling well. I was in a strange mood for several weeks after that. Anyway, the story doesn't end there.

A few years later, I was told that the woman who had lived in the house where the deformed baby dragged itself into, was thought to have dementia. She would often call the police and accuse the neighbor kids of breaking into her home and hiding in the basement. The police would investigate, but never found any evidence. I don't know what eventually happened to her, but I wonder if the 'spawn from Hell baby' may have been antagonizing her and living in her basement. Have you ever seen or heard about anything like this? Thanks for reading." HT
