Orillia OPP and the Criminal Investigation Branch are asking for help locating witnesses to help piece together the events that led to an infant sustaining serious injuries in Orillia.
On Wednesday, March 20, police responded to a 911 call for an 11-month-old boy who was in medical distress in the area of Birch Street in Orillia. The infant was transported to a hospital in Orillia and then airlifted by Ornge to Toronto.
Police believe the infant was dressed in a lime green jacket and navy blue snow pants on that date between 8 and 9:30 a.m. and being taken with three other young children by a female care-provider in a unique four-seat stroller to a school on George Street. During this time, two unidentified adult females approached the care-provider and inquired about the infant’s wellbeing. These witnesses may hold important information and are asked to contact police.
If you believe you observed this infant during this time frame, or have any information regarding this incident, please contact the OPP immediately at 1-888-310-1122. You may also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.
