One man pushed another who fell on the toddler, causing injuries to his face and head.

When his 33-year-old father challenged the group he was knocked to the ground and kicked, bruising his face.

The second suspect was a white man with short brown hair who was slim and 5' 8" or 5' 9". He was wearing a white t-shirt and shorts.
