An Iredell County man was arrested Wednesday in the death of a small child last week.

Shaquille Lawrence Brown, 20, was arrested in the incident in Mooresville Wednesday and is currently being held in the Iredell County Jail, according to a news release from the Statesville Police Department.

Police say Brown physically assaulted a 17-month-old baby on Aug. 28 that would later result in the death of the child. The incident was reported at a home on the 1200 block of 5th Street in Statesville.

The baby was taken by ambulance to Iredell Memorial Hospital and then flown to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem where it died on Monday morning, according to the release.

Police say Brown was dating the mother of the baby and was not related to either of them.

He has yet to be given a bond.
