Baby in Need of Medical Attention NR09289SF

Los Angeles:  Two adults brought a baby in distress into a medical center, but left before care could be given.  The Los Angeles Police Department needs the public’s help to locate the child to ensure his well-being.

Earlier today, at around 11:10 a.m., officers from Southeast Division responded to a “Child Abuse Investigation.”  When they arrived to the Watts Health Care Center located at 10300 Compton Avenue in Los Angeles, they met with the medical staff who said that a woman, man, 4-year-old boy and an infant male entered the location seeking medical treatment for the baby.  When the adults were asked for identification, they replied that they left their information in the car but that they lived in Nickerson Gardens, an apartment complex in Los Angeles.

Observing that the infant was lethargic and having trouble breathing, the nurses from the medical center took the baby’s vital signs and told the adults that the child was in critical condition and needed to be transported by ambulance to a hospital for immediate care.  The suspects became upset, took the baby from the nurses and left the medical center.  It is not known if the suspects left the area by car, or on foot.  

The suspects are described as:
  • Suspect #1 - Female Black with black hair and brown eyes.  She stood approximately 5’1”, weighed about 180 lbs, had a light complexion and her hair in a ponytail.  She was last seen wearing blue “Anime” (Japanese animated cartoon) print pajama bottoms and a grey jacket.
  • Suspect #2 – Male Black with black hair and brown eyes.  He stood approximately 5’5”, weighed about 180 lbs, wore a do-rag head cap on his head, black shorts and a white t-shirt.  
Due to the baby’s urgent need for medical attention, the LAPD immediately sent out a broadcast announcing the description of the involved parties.  Notifications to local hospitals, the Department of Children Family Services, the Department of Transportation and other resources were also made to help look for the adults and children who left the medical center.
 
Anyone who may have information about the suspects, the baby and the 4-year-old, are asked to call 9-1-1, or the Southeast Division Area Community Police Station at 213-972-7828.  During off-hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text “Crimes” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on web tips.  When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  

Tipsters may remain anonymous.
