YOUNGSTOWN — A South Side toddler is in critical condition in Akron Children’s Hospital after being severely beaten this evening.

The child, of Lucius Avenue, was reportedly assaulted with a wire coat hanger by an unrelated adult male. The child was also punched several times and held under water in a bathtub.

A family friend said the child was born in February 2008 and the alleged suspect had met the child’s mother two weeks ago. The friend said the child remains on life support with his mother and grandmother at his bedside and is not expected to survive.

Youngstown police had no other information and are investigating the matter.

The suspect faces possible charges of child endangerment.
