YONKERS, N.Y. – A Yonkers man has been charged in connection with the death of his 6-month-old baby girl.

Clarence Thomas, 30, was arraigned Thursday afternoon in Yonkers Criminal Court,  where he was charged with second-degree assault, a felony.

Yonkers police said on March 14, at roughly 6:10 a.m., police and EMS responded to 121 Ludlow St., after receiving reports of a baby who was not breathing. The infant, Natalia Johns, was taken an area hospital where she died that same morning.

Police arrested the child’s father a week later after and began an investigation after conducting several interviews, officials said.

No further information was released as police said the investigation is active and ongoing.
