(CNN) -- A 2-year-old girl died after a confrontation in Beijing between her mother and a motorist that saw the toddler grabbed from her stroller and thrown to the ground, Chinese state media reported Saturday.
Authorities have arrested the driver and a passenger in connection with the attack, which began Tuesday after a woman who was pushing a baby stroller refused to get out of the way so that they could park, Xinhua reported, citing Beijing police.
The driver and the passenger then got out of their car, with the driver allegedly knocking the woman to ground and then grabbing the toddler from the stroller, the police told the news agency. The passenger also is accused of hitting the woman, according to Xinhua.
The driver, who has been identified by authorities only by the last name Han, was arrested Wednesday at a spa, according to the news agency. His car has been impounded by authorities.
The passenger, identified as Li, turned himself in at a police station, authorities told Xinhua.
The child, whose identity was not released, was pronounced dead at Beijing's Tiantan Hospital on Thursday, Xinhua reported.
