Police are looking for Juan Garcia, who allegedly beat his girlfriend's 2-year-old son to death.
Phoenix cops have been working since Saturday to find Juan Garcia -- who's accused of killing his girlfriend's 2-year-old son late Friday night -- and police say the leads have been scarce as of yet.

"We're going to track him down -- it's just a matter of when," Phoenix Sergeant Trent Crump tells New Times. "We're not going away."

According to court documents, Garcia, 18, picked up 2-year-old Jorge Zamora-Rogel by the neck and slammed him into a wall at his girlfriend's house, before smashing the boy's head into the ground and beating him unconscious. Garcia attempted to wake the boy up, but when he didn't respond, Garcia just left the house. Jorge died after his girlfriend allegedly waited about three hours to call 9-1-1.

"When you have an act like this committed against a 2-year-old, there's not too many people that doesn't outrage," Crump says. "Including the people in this department."

Crump says Garcia has ties to southwest Phoenix, and all indications are that Garcia's from the Phoenix area. He has possible ties to Mexico, but there's no reason to believe he's left the Phoenix area, Crump says.

Crump says Garcia has a gang affiliation, and although he has a juvenile record, Crump says there were no violent crimes on his record -- at least in Phoenix.

Regardless of Garcia's prior juvenile troubles, police describe his alleged actions on Friday night as a "violent assault on [the boy] causing severe swelling to [his] head, obvious bruising, bloody froth coming from his mouth, labored breathing with rattling sounds, unconsciousness, and non-responsiveness to pain stimuli for over three hours..."

Police would also like to issue a warning for anyone who might help Garcia avoid the cops.

"Anyone who helps this suspect avoid apprehension in away, they're going to jail with him," Crump says.

If you know where Garcia is, Phoenix police ask that you phone them up at 602-262-6141 or call Silent Witness.

Well at the very least, you must give credit to PPD for not giving up on the search for Juan "El Kid-Killer" Garcia. While the MCSO gave up it's search of Juan "Child Rapist" Cruz.

There is a difference between violent illegal criminals and those here illegally and secretly hired under the Republican wing workforce. Which is probably why no "Employers" were arrested during the FF's dubious "crime suppression sweeps".

 You hit the nail on the head Triple-6. Good point. I hope the law finds that kid killing criminal. Only cowards and monsters kill a helpless child. And the traitors who are aiding and abetting him.

 You might want to check your sister's closet. The killer could be hiding in there. And if he is then you are in deep shit with the law for aiding and abetting a criminal. Turn in your son to the law. Do the right thing and report him.

Good luck, moron.

 You need to chill, you sound pretty ignorant your self with that language.
and what does being legal or not have to do with crime and violence?
crimes are committed by U.S citizens as well as native Americans, people that are here legally and illegally all the time doesn't make a damn difference what color your skin is or what language you speak I am so tired of ignorant prejudice people posting what their tiny brains tell them to trying to act like they know something. do some actual research then try re-posting please.  And if you decide to insult me use facts
