A 19-year-old Estherville man is facing felony charges after allegedly abusing a child.

The investigation began last month when the 2-year-old girl was taken to the hospital with what doctors considered numerous injuries on her body.

Police say the mother found the wounds after picking up the victim from a relative's home after an overnight stay.

The girl was treated at the hospital and released.

19-year-old Felipe Padron Triana, of Estherville, was recently arrested and charged with two felony counts of child endangerment in connection to the incident.

He was released on a $7,500 unsecured bond after his court appearance.
