MADEIRA, OH (FOX19) - A Madeira man is behind bars after police say he caused third degree burns to a 2-year-old boy and dislocated his elbow.
David Dalton Jr., 28, is facing two counts of endangering children.
Madeira officers were called to the emergency room at Bethesda North Hospital over the weekend after a child was brought in with a severe burn on his foot and a possible broken arm. The child was taken to Children's Hospital.
After an investigation, officers determined Dalton grabbed the child's right arm several times on Thursday until he heard a pop. On Friday, police say Dalton placed the child's right foot in hot water, causing severe burns.
The child has possible third degree burns on the top of his foot and ankle, and second degree burns on the bottom of his foot. He has had three pins placed in his right elbow, which had been dislocated.
