Authorities have arrested and charged a North Hollywood man for the beating death of a 14-month-old baby, according to authorities.
Cesar Daniel Cabrera Jr., 20, is charged with assault on a child that would likely result in the child becoming comatose or paralyzed and child abuse under circumstances or conditions likely to cause great bodily injury, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office announced Friday.
“The physical abuse suffered by this young boy is horrifying. That the alleged perpetrator is the child’s father is unconscionable,” District Attorney George Gascon said in a statement. “The harm inflicted in this case warrants that special allegations be filed. My office is committed to protecting our children by holding accountable anyone who abuses them.”
The charges also include special allegations of abuse to a child under 5 years old and felony offense while out on bail.
