LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas man has been arrested after a 1-year-old boy was found to have suffered severe burns that required surgery.

The 23-year-old man is facing child abuse charges after his Friday arrest.

Investigators say the man was watching the child while the boy’s mother was out and that the injuries were not accidental. The boy suffered severe burns to his hands and wrists.

Details as to what led to the child’s injuries were not immediately available.
