A police spokeswoman said the baby had since been transported to Starship Hospital and remained in a critical condition.

A scene examination is being carried out at a residential property in Elizabeth St, with the assistance of ESR.

The residents of that property were assisting police with their enquiries and at this stage nobody else is being sought in relation to this matter.
