Police appeal for help after suspicious death of toddler

Police have renewed their appeal for information as they continue to investigate the suspicious death of a two-year-old boy in Sydney.

Arsalan Fard was taken unconscious to Westmead Hospital about 9pm on Friday 3 August, 2018.

Hospital staff desperately worked to save the toddler, however sadly he could not be revived.


According to detectives, inquiries suggest the boy “most likely received injuries in Cabramatta before he was later driven to Westmead Hospital by his mother and other persons.”

A post mortem has since been conducted and the little boy’s death is being treated as suspicious.

On Wednesday 26 September 2018, investigators executed a search warrant at a property in Cabramatta, seizing several items.

Just yesterday, investigators also re-canvassed Park Road at Cabramatta, hoping to speak to anyone with information that may assist the investigation.

“This address is near a shopping centre and police believe a number of persons may have seen something,” NSW Police said.

A photo of a Toyota, similar to the vehicle used to take Arsalan to hospital, has also been released by investigators.

Anyone who sighted this vehicle on the night, or who has any other information that they believe may assist the investigation, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

If you have information for Police, please contact NSW Police on 131 444 or provide information using their online form 24 hours per day. 

You can report also information about crime anonymously to Crime Stoppers by calling 1800 333 000 or via nsw.crimestoppers.com.au 24 hours per day. Crime Stoppers is a registered charity and community volunteer organisation.
