A 2-year-old Davis boy was hospitalized late Wednesday night following what police are calling an act of violence that resulted in a Sacramento man’s arrest on child-endangerment charges.

The boy, whose name was not released, is continuing to receive medical treatment at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, said Davis Assistant Police Chief Darren Pytel, who also would not disclose the nature of the child’s injuries or whether they are considered life-threatening.

“The investigation is still in its early stages, so many additional facts are likely to come to light over time,” Pytel said Thursday. The Yolo County District Attorney’s Office and Child Protective Services also are involved in the investigation.

Pytel said the probe began late Wednesday when the boy’s distraught mother flagged down an ambulance in the area of Olive Drive and Richards Boulevard. In the woman’s vehicle was the toddler, whom Pytel described as “unconscious and unresponsive.”

As the boy was transported to hospital, police launched an investigation that led to the arrest of 21-year-old Darnell Dangelo Dorsey, the mother’s boyfriend, at the Davis police station. Pytel would not disclose whether there are other children in the home, but said “there are no other children residing in the home that are at risk of harm at this time.”

Dorsey was lodged at the Yolo County Jail, where as of Thursday he was facing a single charge of felony child endangerment and was being held in lieu of $1 million bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. Monday in Yolo Superior Court.

Online court records in Sacramento County show Dorsey has a record of arrests for robbery, assault and battery. A 2012 second-degree robbery case resulted in a no-contest plea and three years of probation, while a March 2013 assault and battery case was later dismissed, records show.

    Darnell, Its Marsha....You killed your precious son. You almost killed my son as a terrible role model. Now your going away forever. I wanted you away from my Boo. I knew you were evil. You are a monster. I met your son and you seemed to be too fly...in your own mind to be a father.
