GEORGETOWN, Texas (AP) - A 26-year-old man is facing criminal charges after Georgetown police say he burned his girlfriend’s toddler with hot water in a bathtub.

According to a police affidavit released Monday, Christopher Caldwell has been charged with injury to a child.

Police in December received a report about a medical emergency involving a child at a home. When officers arrived, they found a 2 1/2-year-old who appeared to have burns on the lower half of his body.

The child was taken to a hospital, where doctors determined he had first-degree burns. The affidavit says Caldwell allegedly told officers he was bathing the boy because the child had urinated on himself.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Caldwell had an attorney yet.
