'Injuries right across his body': Investigation continues into attack on Flaxmere 4yo

From Morning Report, 7:24 am on 12 February 2020

Two weeks after a child suffered horrific injuries at his home in Flaxmere the police still don't know who attacked him.

The four-year-old is in a serious condition in Starship Hospital and is likely to be severely disabled if he survives. Roger Nelson lives in Ramsey Crescent.

He has seen the family around but has never spoken to them.

Another neighbour Dean Strickland says he's not heard of anyone having problems with the family.

He says it's a quiet but friendly street and he's shocked by the beating.

It's one of the most appalling cases of child abuse Detective Inspector Mike Foster has seen in his three decades on the force.

He speaks to Corin Dann.
