The group beat the man while on the group and fled with his vehicle, police said.

A Lyft driver alerted Chicago police to a man attempting to drown his own 2-year-old son as a sacrifice, according to court documents obtained by local news.

Jeremiah Campbell, 29, is facing charges of attempted murder, child endangerment, and violating an order of protection in connection with a 2021 incident.

An unnamed Lyft driver contacted 911 after hearing comments from Campbell during their ride to his residence on the 7700 block of South Shore Drive south of downtown Chicago, according to court documents obtained by WGN9.

The driver reportedly told police he heard Campbell talking about conspiracies and sacrificing his son to Jehovah, the outlet reported.

When police arrived at the home, they knocked twice, but no one answered the door. Through a window, they could see a man kneeling over the bathtub and making suspicious movements, at which point they forced their way into the residence, according to WGN9.
