Mr Sutherland was responsible for providing care to the victim during the time the assault occurred. He was arrested after his DNA was matched to that of the baby, Phoenix Police department said.

The 29-year-old victim, who police said “was not in a position to give consent”, has been in the care of the Hacienda Health Care facility in Phoenix, Arizona since the age of three.    The victim’s family described her as having “significant intellectual disabilities as a result of seizures very early in her childhood”.
