Man accused of abusing toddler, causing irreversible brain damage, police say

Man accused of abusing toddler, causing irreversible brain damage, police say

A Georgia man was arrested after he allegedly abused a 2-year-old boy, causing the toddler to have irreversible brain damage and flatline twice before being revived, authorities said. Pedro Tamayo, 27, of Marietta, was charged with felony aggravated battery and first- and third-degree child cruelty, according to a warrant obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He was arrested Thursday after the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force discovered he left the area and went to Dallas, Texas.  >> Mom gets 40 years for murder of 2-year-old son who wet bed, gave her ‘sideways look’ The alleged assault took place June 20 in the 3000 block of Nature Walk Trail. The child’s mother initially told police she was home with the boy when he began having diarrhea, bleeding from the mouth and ears and breathing abnormally, according to the warrant. She later changed her story and said she was at work and the child, along with his sisters, ages 5 and 8, were home alone with Tamayo, warrants allege. The 8-year-old girl told authorities the toddler defecated on himself, prompting Tamayo to take him into the bathroom to bathe him. The girl then said she heard “hysterical crying” until the boy suddenly stopped crying, according to the warrant. The girl then entered the bathroom and said she saw her brother and Tamayo on the ground with the toddler bleeding from his mouth, nose and hip, the warrant said. >> Baby found dead after mom left him home alone for 10 hours while she worked, police say Tamayo, after noticing the child’s breathing was abnormal, immediately left the home with the toddler, according to the warrant. The toddler was originally brought to WellStar Cobb Hospital and was treated for wounds to his head and midsection, the warrant said. The child was later airlifted to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite after additional injuries were discovered, raising concerns. During the flight, the child flatlined twice and needed to be revived twice with CPR, according to the warrant.  Upon arrival, the toddler required a shunt to reduce pressure to the brain, but officials said he experienced an extended period of oxygen deprivation to the brain, causing irreversible damage.  The extent of the damage isn’t known yet, but a CT scan revealed the brain bleeds that were not an accident, authorities said. The boy remained in a coma a day after the alleged abuse, according to the warrant. Authorities have not provided an updated condition.  >> Read more trending news  The toddler’s injuries were described in the warrant as redness, bruising and blistering on his buttocks, in addition to abrasions and bruises to his mid-back, legs, abdomen, upper chest, left side of the neck, forehead and behind both of his ears. Authorities said the toddler’s genitals and thighs also suffered severe swelling, bruising and abrasions.  During their investigation, authorities discovered Tamayo was previously deported from the United States in 2012, Cobb County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Glenn Daniel said in a statement.  Tamayo remains in the Dallas County Jail, awaiting extradition.

Orlando to decide on law barring police from asking law-abiding people about immigration status

City leaders in Orlando will vote Monday on a new policy that changes the way its police interact with the immigrant community. If approved, police will not be able to ask law-abiding individuals about their immigration status. If passed, Orlando could be the first in the state with this policy. Leaders want the thousands of undocumented immigrants living in Orlando to feel comfortable talking to investigators. For instance, if they’re a victim or they’ve witnessed a crime, police want them to come forward.

Ahead of Monday’s meeting and vote, several social justice groups will hold a rally on the steps of Orlando city hall. It’s not the first time these groups have called for immigrant protections.

Digging into the release of the Carter Page FISA application

President Donald Trump on Sunday accused the FBI and Justice Department of misleading a special intelligence court, as both parties wrestled over the details of surveillance requests made in 2016 and 2017 on a one-time Trump Campaign aide, Carter Page, in which the FBI made the case that “Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian Government.”

“Witch Hunt Rigged, a Scam!” the President tweeted from his New Jersey golf club, as he again denounced the investigation into Russian interference of the 2016 elections, and any possible ties to the Trump Campaign.
