Our police officers see some of the worst of humanity along with some of the best. Today's incident must be troublesome to even the most seasoned police officers.
A 5 month old child has been admitted to Connecticut Children's Medical Center suffering from what is believed to be trauma suffered from a sexual assault. The child was brought to the hospital after the mother noticed unusual bruising and marks on the child. According to police sources, specialists at CCMC confirmed that the injuries were consistent with an apparent sexual assault and evidence of internal trauma was also found.
HPD sources confirmed that a potential suspect who was also in the apartment at the time of the alleged assault is being questioned. The mother was taken into police custody on an unrelated outstanding warrant. As of this time an arrest has not been made, but sources said that an arrest is very likely. HPD's Juvenile Investigation Division (JID)is continuing their investigation
Please keep this child in your thoughts as well as the officer's and medical staff who have had to deal with this matter.
