A Winnipeg man has been arrested in connection with an assault on a three-year-old child this summer.

Police said they were called July 31 by a family member who was in a separate suite at a Winnipeg residence, heard the child crying, and went to investigate. The accused — who was supposed to be looking after the three-year-old at the time — fled the scene and the child was taken to hospital in stable condition.
