A man who has been accused of stabbing his infant child on Monday has been arrested by police.

The incident allegedly occurred at Bishops Gap. Officers attached to the Marchand Police Station received a report that a baby was being held hostage at a residence in Marchand. They alerted officers attached to the Major Crimes Unit, Special Services Unit and the Criminal Investigations Department and immediately responded.

On arrival at the location, the officers observed a man holding a baby. At the time, he was holding a knife to the baby. This individual, on several occasions threatened to kill the baby.

Numerous attempts to persuade the suspect to hand over the baby proved futile. The suspect concealed himself in his house, in the process stabbing the baby multiple times. The officers were able to retrieve the baby and subdue the suspect.

The baby who was later identified as four-month-old Parris Leonce of Sarrot, Bexon, was transported to Victoria Hospital, where she was treated and admitted for multiple stab wounds.

The suspect who is believed to be the baby’s father is currently in police custody. Charges are expected to be laid against him.
