Damascus Man Charged with First Degree Child Abuse of His Own Five-Month Old Child

Per MCPD: “On Monday, January 8, 2023, detectives from the Montgomery County Police Special Victims Investigations Division (SVID)-Child Abuse and Sex Assault Unit arrested 25-year-old, Oliver Hernandez Caballero of Damascus, for allegedly causing severe injuries to his 5-month-old child.  

The investigation has revealed that on Thursday, December 28, 2023, Hernandez Caballero was at home, alone with his 5-month-old child. At approximately 9 p.m., the child was taken to Shady Grove Hospital following concerns that the child was having difficulty breathing and eating.

The child was transferred to the Children’s National Medical Center as a result of severe and unexplained injuries to the head and body. Child Protective Services (CPS) notified detectives from the SVID-Child Abuse and Sex Assault Unit of the incident.

Throughout the course of the investigation, detectives obtained information leading to the accusation that the child’s father, Hernandez Caballero, abused the child, resulting in severe injuries.

Hernandez Caballero, who is the child’s biological father, was arrested on Monday, January 8, 2024, on the strength of a warrant. He was transported to the Montgomery County Central Processing Unit where he has been charged with two counts of first-degree child abuse. He is currently being held without bond.”
