Toddler suffers suspected life-altering injuries in Traralgon

Detectives are investigating the circumstances which lead to a toddler receiving suspected life-altering injuries in Traralgon earlier this month.

Central Gippsland Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Unit detectives are investigating after police were advised a seriously injured 22-month old girl was taken to a local hospital in Traralgon on Friday 12 November about 10.45pm.

Police have been told the young girl was found unresponsive in an Ashworth Drive property shortly before she was rushed to hospital.

At the time it was believed the girl suffered life-threatening injuries and at this stage remains in a serious but stable condition in a metropolitan hospital.

It is unclear if the injuries to the young girl will have permanent or long-lasting impact on her life.

As part of the ongoing investigation, Major Crime Scene officers executed a warrant at the Ashworth Drive property on Tuesday and seized several items.

They have also spoken to a number people as part of the investigation.

Detectives are appealing for anyone with information about the circumstances in which the child received the life-altering injuries to come forward.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or log into www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
