At approximately 3:05 pm on Monday May 10th officers were dispatched to the 6400 block of Weber for an unconscious infant.
When the officers arrived, they located a 1-year-old child who was not responsive. Officers attempted to provide life-saving measures before medics arrived and transported the child to a local hospital, where she later passed from her injuries.
Detectives with the Family Violence Section of the Criminal Investigation Division responded to the scene in an effort to investigate. During the investigation they discovered enough cause to arrest the mother’s boyfriend, 31-year-old Mark Hernandez, for Injury to a Child.
Investigators continued their investigation and on June 06, 2021, a warrant was applied for and secured for the mother of the child, 23-year-old Briana Garcia.
On June 09, 2021, Briana Garcia was arrested on the outstanding warrant for Injury to a Child by Omission ($500,00 Bond). Briana was interviewed by Investigators and was later transported to the City Detention Center for processing.
