User :   My 3 year old stepson when told to go to bed tonight exploded and said no and start screaming at me to get out and I had my 3 month old son in my arms and he repeatedly while charging and hitting me and trying to hit his brother told me to get out. I told him to stop hitting me he told me to shut my mouth and repeated that over and over. I put the baby in his crib while XXXXXXXX kept telling me to get out over and over. Then he tried to grab a hammer and hit me with it and then said he wanted to kill our cats and birds and said he would be playing with them. Then he said he would kill them with a can of air freshener. He kept trying to hit me and told me to shut the baby up and threw the car seat at me saying here's the car seat now get the baby and get out. Then he told me if I aggrevated him anymore he would throw me outside and lock me out. I will throw you outside and lock the door and lock you out is what he said. Said if you spank me I will kill you and your cats.
