A neighbor in the 300-block of Walter Avenue tells KDKA he saw two adults put a child in a car and speed away from the house just before 6 p.m.
KDKA’s Kym Gable reports that someone took that child to the Mt. Oliver Police Station where officers noticed bruises and other injuries on the 2-year-old.

The little boy was then rushed to Children’s Hospital where sources say he is in serious condition.
