Two parents were jailed Monday after their two-year-old child was hospitalized, suffering from multiple blows to the head.

Domingo Carrizales, 32, and wife Daisy, 26, of Hershey were arrested after sheriff’s officers investigated a report of potential child abuse from the Great Plains Regional Medical Center, a sheriff’s office spokesman said.

A deputy and investigator, along with a representative of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, went to the hospital emergency room, where they found a two-year-old had been struck several times on and around the head, causing severe swelling and possible brain injury, the spokesman said.

Investigators believe the child was in the custody of the Carrizaleses during the timeframe the injuries occurred.

Domingo Carrizales, 32, was interviewed and admitted to striking the child several times about the head with his fist on Saturday, two days before the child was hospitalized, the spokesman said.

Domingo was subsequently charged with felony child abuse and locked in the Lincoln County Jail.

Interviews were also conducted with other related children at the Bridge of Hope Child Advocacy Center as well as Daisy Carrizales, which established probable cause to arrest Daisy as an accessory and for misdemeanor child abuse. She was arrested and jailed.

The investigation is ongoing, the sheriff’s spokesman said.
