Police investigating potential child abuse case

Wichita police are investigating a potential child abuse case.

The incident happened after 3 p.m. Friday afternoon in the 100 South Ridge apartment complex.

Police say a 5-month-old child was taken to St. Joe hospital by the parents, after reports of seizures and throwing up for 3 days.

The hospital examined the child and found several brain bleeds over several periods of time.

Hospital authorities called police and the child was transferred to St. Francis. The parents, a 24-year-old woman and 26-year-old male were taken in for questioning.

Another child, 4-year-old female, lived at the residence and was taken into police custody.

The case is still under investigation. It is unclear at this time if the parents have been arrested.
