SOCORRO - A toddler is dead tonight, and the child's father has been arrested.
Police we're called to a trailer park in 11400 block of Alameda on Friday night. That's where they found a 2-year old unresponsive after being left inside a car. The sheriff's office was called in to investigate, and they arrested 25-year-old Emmanuel Armendariz for leaving the 2-year old in the car.
And in El Paso, another child was left in a hot truck on Friday. Investigators arrested Blanca Bonilla for leaving a 1-year old in a hot truck with the windows rolled up. El Paso police rescued the child, but say the 1-year old was sweating inside.
And yet another case of child endangerment, this time in El Paso County. The Sheriff's Office says Erika Esparza threw her baby at her husband in front of a Sheriff's Deputy during a fight. It happened in the 600 block of Cascada. They say she also punched the deputy and bit his hand when he tried to arrest her. The child and the deputy are okay.
