BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Baton Rouge Police brought 22-month-old TyShawn Brumfield to the hospital Thursday after being found unresponsive by his babysitter. His grandma Shelia Parker says TyShawn has broken bones in his back and cigarette burns on his body.

“They took all the joy out of him,” said Parker. “Who bites on a baby? Who cuts their throat? Who burns a child? Who does this?”

Police arrested 36-year-old Howard Youngblood. BRPD arrest reports show Youngblood told them that the child fell on the front steps. However, a doctor says the injuries were not consistent with a fall since TyShawn had multiple bleeds in his head and swelling.

“He’s been a champion in fighting, he wants to live, y’all. However, when people touch him, his heart rate goes fast, he must think people trying to hurt him when they touch him,” said Parker. “It’s wrong when adults take advantage of children. Very wrong and I’m angry, but I want to see them in court.”

Parker says TyShawn’s mom was staying at a friend’s house after her apartment had mold. Parker says she does not know who was watching her grandson.

“The baby kept getting sick. So she left the apartment because she had no other choice and was living there with her friends. They should have fixed the house, not just wiped the walls down when the baby continues to get sick because theirs mold in it,” she said.

Right now doctors don’t know the next steps for little TyShawn. But, Parker says she will be fighting for justice.

“I’m crying not just for my grandson but so many others who are helpless,” said Parker.
