A baby is in hospital with severe head trauma after reports of abuse.

Police say they were called to the scene at the basement unit of a semi detached townhouse on Haven Hill Square, in the Midland and Finch avenues area of Scarborough shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday.

The baby, who police say is under one-year in age, was taken to SickKids hospital.

Police say they are investigating allegations of child abuse.

Neighbours tell CityNews a single mother in her 20s lives in that unit with her child and that police were called to the address months ago for a domestic incident.
