Dallas news, Texas news.

Residents of a Dallas neighborhood woke up Saturday morning to a horrific crime when a jogger stumbled upon a toddler’s body lying in a pool of his own blood in the middle of the road.

The 4-year-old victim was stabbed several times with “an edged weapon” and died “in a violent manner” at around 5 a.m. Saturday.

39-year-old Antwainese Square was the person who first spotted the little boy’s lifeless body at around 6:40 a.m. while jogging around the Mountain Creek area.

She said that she at first thought it was a dead animal because she only saw his hair but once she approached the bloody scene, she spotted the small arms and legs of a child.

“That’s when I noticed the baby had ants at the bottom of his feet, so I knew he was deceased then. It was heart-wrenching because this baby could have been no more than 5,” she recalled.

    An 18-year-old girl identified as Lila Gilbert said that police knocked on her family home’s door at 8 a.m. asking if they had any missing child report.

    “It’s a lot to take in,” she said adding how she could see the victim’s bloody face with bruises and bite marks all over it.

    “It’s so shocking to me that it’s a 4-year-old, someone’s baby. That could’ve been my little cousin or brother or something. It’s just the point that he’s gone now. It’s just terrifying.”

    Police said that a man had been arrested in connection with the tragic incident. His identity was not immediately revealed.
