GLADEWATER, TX (KLTV) -

A man has been arrested after CPS and police say he sent a preschool-age child to a hospital with injuries.

On July 2, according to Gladewater Police Department, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services contacted them to report that a three-year-old child was seriously injured while in the custody of a caregiver.

A formal investigation was conducted, police say, which led detectives to seek the assistance of Gregg County District Attorney Carl Dorrough to get an arrest warrant for the caregiver, Deion Marquis Sanders, 22.

Sanders was arrested by GPD detectives Justin Carlson and James Gillen on the evening of July 3 in Longview, police say. He was booked into the Gladewater jail on the charge of Injury to a Child, a felony 3 level offense, with a punishment range of 2 to 10 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and a fine up to $10,000, according to judicial records.

The child is currently receiving treatment at a medical center in Dallas.
