Peel police say they have charged a 22-year-old Brampton man with aggravated assault after a baby boy under his care sustained “horrific injuries” that left him in a coma. Police say the child was under the care of the suspect on Canada Day when he sustained the injuries.

It is not immediately clear what caused the injuries to the child but Klintom Villaruz was arrested on July 3 and charged with one count of aggravated assaulted in the case.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Special Victims Bureau at (905)-453-2121, ext. 3460.
