MANSFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — A Hartford man faces charges for allegedly leaving his premature baby boy on the hood of a stranger’s car in Mansfield in March 2022.

Connecticut State Police arrested Jorge Grados, 41, on Monday and charged him with intentional cruelty to a person and risk of injury to a child.

In March 2022, a woman called 911 about a baby that had been wrapped in a towel and left on the hood of her parked car. When troopers arrived at the scene, the 2 lb. baby boy was taken to an area hospital.

Hospital staff determined the 28- to 30-week-old premature baby had just been born 24 to 48 hours before Grados allegedly left him on the hood of the car, investigators said.

The baby survived.

Grados was due in court on Tuesday and is being held on a $100,000 cash bond.
