WESTMINSTER (CBSLA) – A mother has been arrested in the suspicious death of her four-month-old son following a medical emergency call in Westminster Tuesday night.
At around 11 p.m., officers were called to a home in the 15200 block of Coronado Street regarding an infant who was in distress, Westminster police report. Officers arrived to find the boy on the floor with traumatic injuries. Officers tried to revive the boy, but he died, police said.
The nature of the child’s injuries were not immediately disclosed.
Officers determined there were unusual circumstances surrounding the situation and detectives were called in to investigate. The child’s mother, Thi Nhat Ha Nguyen, was later arrested on suspicion of homicide, police said.
“At this point, I can’t get too much into her statements and frame of mind, but there was evidence at the scene, and based on the injuries to the child, we arrested the mother for suspicion of homicide,” Westminster Police Cmdr. Cameron Knauerhaze told CBS2.
The mother and her boyfriend rent a room in the house where officers were initially called, Knauerhaze said.
