    Man Charged With Cruelty to Persons in Child Abuse Case
    Manchester police have arrested Doel Reyes, 37, in connection to a case of alleged child abuse.

    Manchester police have arrested a man accused of abusing a child in a case that also saw a Connecticut Children's Medical Center nurse arrested.

    Doel Reyes, 37, turned himself in to police on Wednesday.

    Reyes faces charges of second degree assault with a firearm, intentional cruelty to persons, risk of injury to a child and third-degree assault with injury.

    He was arraigned in Manchester Superior Court and held on $100,000.

    According to police, the alleged abuse happened at the home of Sirializ Ortero, a nurse at CCMC. Ortero was arrested and charged with risk of injury to a minor and cruelty to persons after police said she tried to conceal the boy's injuries.

    A spokesperson for CCMC said Ortero has been placed on administrative leave.
