Police have recorded the statement from an individual alleged to be the boyfriend of the teen mother of the baby boy who was found on the roof of a two-storey terrace house in Taman Seri Dermawan, Bercham last Saturday.

Ipoh district police chief ACP A Asmadi Abdul Aziz said police also conducted a deoxyribonucleic acid test (DNA) on the 18-year-old boy from Selangor to facilitate investigation under Section 317 of the Penal Code.

He also did not rule out the possibility that police would also investigate the case under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape.

A Asmadi said police had also recorded the statement of the 16-year-old girl to assist investigations into the case.

He said the baby boy, who was born full-term and sustained head injuries is in critical condition and undergoing treatment at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the Women, Children and Cardiology Complex of the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital.

“We are still waiting for the full medical report from the hospital to find out what exactly happened and determine the cause of his injuries,” he told a press conference today.
