Elder Matamoros, a 23 year old Norwalk resident has been arrested and charged on felony child cruelty charges, officials with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department announced on Tuesday afternoon.

Homicide detectives responded to Miller‘s Children’s Hospital in Long Beach to investigate the circumstances surrounding a male two year-old who is in extremely critical condition.

Detectives determined that Norwalk Station Deputies responded along with paramedics to a “Baby Not Breathing” call at 12:50 p.m. this past Sunday, January 5, 2014 in the 11400 block of Maza Street.

“When they arrived, the victim was unresponsive and subsequently transported to a local hospital,” a Sheriff’s spokesperson confirmed to Hews Media Group-Community Newspapers.

Further investigation resulted in the arrest of Matamoros who is reportedly the boyfriend of the babysitter.

Sheriff officials are claiming that earlier in the day, the victim had been left by his mother to be cared for by a resident at the location.  “It is believed the suspect assaulted the victim by using blunt force trauma,” a statement to members of the media stressed.
