A teen suspect has been arrested for allegedly breaking into a Dallas home and kidnapping a sleeping 4- year-old boy who was later found dead on a street, authorities said Monday.

The child, who suffered multiple fatal wounds from what police say was an “edged weapon,” was identified Sunday by his grieving guardian as Cash Gernon, WFAA reported.

The “happy-go-lucky” boy was sleeping when a suspect, identified by cops as 18-year-old Darriynn Brown, barged into his home through a back door and kidnapped him on Saturday, his guardian said.

Brown is now charged with kidnapping and theft in connection to Cash’s death. He is being held on $750,000 bail, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Brown was busted for evading arrest in late April and the case is still pending, the newspaper reported. Court documents show he lived with his parents just a half-mile from where the boy’s body was found.

An initial WFAA report the accused kidnapper was wearing an ankle monitor at the time of the abduction is inaccurate, according to the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office.

The boy’s grieving mom said she had no idea what allegedly led Brown to target her son, whose body was later discovered in the street by a jogger early Saturday. The teen suspect did not know Cash, his guardian told the station off-camera.

Surveillance video also captured the kidnapping, the guardian added. Investigators asked neighbors Sunday for any additional footage to help them piece together what happened, WFAA reported. Some nearby residents told the station Brown was regularly seen in the city’s Mountain Creek section.

“Hard to believe,” neighbor Jose Ramirez said of the boy’s slaying. “I don’t think [Brown] was in his right mind.”

Cops scoured the neighborhood over the weekend after finding the boy’s body, Ramirez said.

“They were back in the alley, looking through trash containers to see if they could find any type of evidence,” he told WFAA. “They went down the street, and they spent a good time down there.”

Another resident, Katie Guillen, dropped off flowers at a makeshift memorial where the 4-year-old’s body was found.

“It’s just so sad that someone woke up this morning and lost their child without a warning,” Guillen said. “How do you throw away someone’s body like he’s nothing? He’s someone’s kid.”

Cash’s twin brother is now in state custody, his guardian told WFAA.

Dallas police said in a statement Sunday that Brown had been charged and that aditional charges are expected following a forensic analysis.

Brown was being held Monday at the Dallas County Jail, records show. It’s unclear if he’s hired an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

The boy, who wasn’t identified by authorities, was found shirtless and shoeless in the street and likely died before 5 a.m. Saturday, the Dallas Morning News reported.

He was discovered by Antwainese Square, 39, who was jogging in the neighborhood and initially thought a dog was in the middle of the street.

But then she saw the boy’s arms and legs.

“That’s when I noticed the baby had ants at the bottom of his feet. So I knew he was deceased then,” Square told the Morning News. “It was heart-wrenching because this baby could have been no more than 5.”

“We are shocked, we are very angry about what has happened to this small child,” spokesman Albert Martinez told the newspaper.

Brown’s stepfather declined to speak when reached for comment by the Morning News.
