Parents are claiming that their 4-week-old baby already walks like an adult and breathes fire, according to reports.

Black magic and evil spirits have captured the soul of a newborn baby in Colombia, because he apparently can walk by himself and produce fire, his parents and neighbors said.

Ana Feria Santos gave birth to her son last month, but said that her joy quickly turned into fear when she realized that he had several anomalies, prompting fears in the community that he is the devil in disguise.

She said that the baby can get up and walk, a feat for a child as young as four-weeks-old.

Like the 1976 horror film The Omen, the mother of five children, said that the baby often hides in the house, cackling in an adult way for hours and has an intimidating pair of eyes.

She told the local radio station: "He walks like an adult, sometimes hiding under the bed, in a suitcase, in the washing machine or refrigerator."

Her neighbors in Lorica city, near the Caribbean coast, also said that he is possessed by an evil spirit and is capable of producing fire.

They say this because of the burn marks that were found on clothing and a couch he sits on regularly.

This has led to vigilante attacks on the house and her husband Oscar Palencia LOpez, who is a driver, has allegedly been attacked with stones at night by frightened residents.

The 28-year-old has not been taken seriously by doctors, who have launched an investigation into the possibility that the baby could have been abused.
