Baltimore police on Wednesday questioned a man they had been seeking for days in an investigation into an 18-month-old girl who contracted gonorrhea, a city police spokesman confirmed on Thursday.
The 21-year-old man who has twice been convicted of felonies was arrested on a warrant charging him with violating the terms of his probation for a manslaughter conviction in 2007. Police had said the warrant was issued after the man became a person of interest in the child sex case.
But police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said on Thursday that the man, who was questioned for hours by detectives, "is not being considered a suspect" at this time. Police said they need to investigate his version of what happened inside his neighbor's Cherry Hill row house earlier this month.
