The death of a two-year-old boy in Sydney’s south-west is now being treated as suspicious following police inquiries that suggest the boy received injuries before being taken to hospital.

Toddler Arsalan Fard was driven to Westmead Hospital about 9pm on August 3, 2018 by his mother and others and was unconscious when he arrived.

Despite staff efforts, the boy was unable to be revived.

Inquiries have now led police to believe the boy was injured at a property in Cabramatta before he was driven to the hospital.

An autopsy was performed, with the death now being treated as suspicious.

An investigation was launched into the death, with police executing a search warrant on a property on Park Road, Cabramatta on September 26, 2018, seizing several items.

Police re-canvassed the street on Wednesday night, hoping to find anyone with information that may assist with inquiries.

Investigators have now released a photo of a Toyota Camry, similar to the one used to take Arsalan to the hospital, in hopes to find someone who may have seen the car that night.

Due to the close proximity of the property to Cabramatta shopping centre, police have said they believe a number of people may have seen something that could help with the investigation.
