A 2-year-old child is in critical condition after being violently assaulted inside a motel room in Vancouver Tuesday night.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office said they responded to a disturbance at the Sunnyside Motel at 12200 NE Hwy 99 around 8:49 p.m.

According to deputies, they arrived to find a male suspect beating and kicking a 2-year-old toddler.

Another resident of the motel tried to intervene by hitting the man with a baseball bat.

CCSO said the man was out of control and they were forced to use a Taser on him in order to bring him into custody.

The toddler was transported to a nearby hospital with critical injuries.

The suspect, identified as Kyle Holder, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was booked into the Clark County jail.

Holder faces a charge of first-degree attempted murder.

Officials said Holder has an extensive criminal history. His bail is set at $1 million.

Deputies said the person who attacked the suspect will not face charges.
