LAS CRUCES- Police arrested a man for abusing his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter.

Adrian Banda, 19, was arrested late Monday evening and is charged with one count of intentional child abuse.

On Monday, Police were called to Memorial Medical Center where the 2-year-old girl was being treated for injuries to her face, forehead, mouth and left ear.

Police say Banda had been watching the girl while her 21-year-old mother was at work. When the girl’s mother arrived home after work she noticed bruises and her daughter appeared to have a neck injury. The girl was then taken to the hospital. The girl’s injuries are not life-threatening.

Detectives interviewed Banda and the girl’s mother and found several inconsistencies in Banda’s statements.

Banda was arrested and transported to the Dona Ana County Detention Center with bond set at $10,000.

It is not this animal's whole responsibility. The mother expects another man to take care of a child that is not his????These women keep having children out of wedlock with no remorse or regret. Where are our moral's and family values. It is the government's fault for delivering, feeding and housing these government leeches.

Woman, are you serious? Did you not read that she was at work??? How do you know that this woman is receiving government assistance? Exactly! As for her having her child out of wedlock, how do you know that too? For all you know she was married to the child's father and things didn't work out. Your entire statement was based on ASSUMPTIONS. It is that man's fault and his fault only. PERIOD!

thats why they are "in a relationship" he is supposed to be a fatherly figure not go and beat up a 2 year old girl. It isnt the mother's fault. You should be ashamed of yourself. If she had no remorse or regret her daughter would be in the system with even worser people and she wouldn't of took responsiblity. She is working how are you goin to judge and say she is recieving government assistance when you don't even know. Your probably on SSI recieving government money.

how is she a leech if she was at work?

What is going on...Even a 10 week old baby is beaten..Las Cruces should have a sign stating. "Welcome to Las Cruces New Mexico, where children are beaten and raped ".These folks should suffer like these defensless children were forced to. However, we will give these animals protection and their rights under the law..Where was these childrens rights? who protected them? Who????

There must be something it the Las Cruces Water. Why is it you never hear anything nice or positive about it, Is there a sign that says...Welcome to Las Cruces New Mexico The City where Children are beaten and raped, please enjoy are city! He should be given electric shocks and left to suffer with no medical attention treated like the animal he is no mercy!!!!!!

While he is in jail he should be beaten just like he beat a defensless two year old. How would you like it?!
