Des Moines Police have issued an arrest warrant in the case of a 2 year old boy who was severely burned while in the care of his father's girlfriend.

19 year old Breanna Bryson is charged with child endangerment causing serious injury after Tavion Moore was burned, causing second and third degree burns on his hands after the incident in a Des Moines home on Sunday.

Doctors say the burns are consistent with scalding water or oil. They were so severe that skin was falling off the toddler's hand.

Bryson told authorities that Tavion was burned in an accident involving a dishwasher. Police say this was an intentional act.
