Child OK; parents face charges

FARMINGTON – Farmington police say an infant who was taken into state custody is doing well and his parents are facing abuse charges.

Officers arrived at a Farmington motel Thursday after getting a call about an unresponsive child. The caller told police a couple was in the lobby arguing and the 7-month-old child would not wake up, police spokeswoman Georgette Allen said.

The child was taken to a local hospital and placed into the custody of the Children, Youth and Families Department. Allen said Monday the boy is doing well.

The child’s father, 22-year-old Shanevan Beyale, is facing charges that include criminal sexual penetration of a minor and child abuse.
