There are two women out there that police believe may hold important insight after an infant was severely hurt.
Police were called to Birch St. in Orillia on March 20th, with reports an 11-month-old infant was in medical distress. The child was rushed to hospital and later airlifted to Toronto for treatment.
Investigators say the child was being walked to a school on George St. at the time, in a four-seat stroller along with three other children and a care provider. At some point in the trip, they were approached by two women who questioned the child’s wellbeing. Police are appealing to those two women to come forward, as they may be able to shed light on the child’s injuries.
The child may have been wearing a lime green jacket and navy blue snow pants, and may have been in the following areas in the City of Orillia between March 19 and 20, 2019:
• Gill Street
• Peter Street North
• Birch Street
• Barrie Road
• Lexington Avenue
• Westmount Drive North
• George Street
