6-year-old child found malnourished inside west-side home; SAPD investigating

The child was taken to the hospital for evaluation. Nobody has been arrested at this time.

SAN ANTONIO — Police are investigating after a 6-year-old child was found malnourished inside a home on San Antonio's west side early Friday morning.

Officials were called to the 5000 block of Timberhurst just before 4 a.m. for a welfare check on a young child.

When officers arrived at the home, they say the 6-year-old appeared to be malnourished, so the child was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

The two suspects, a 20-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman, were taken to police headquarters for questioning and further investigation.

No arrests have been made at this time.
