Police: Liberty man injured toddler

PICKENS — A Liberty man is behind bars after police believe he caused severe injuries to a 2-year-old child.

David Keith Fink Jr., 24, of 112 Effie Court in Liberty was arrested on Thursday and charged with abuse resulting in great bodily injury. He was being held at the Pickens County Detention Center Tuesday on a $75,000 surety bond.

According to a statement issued by Pickens County Sheriff’s Office chief deputy Creed Hashe, a 2-year-old child was taken by ambulance to a hospital after an alleged fall inside a bathroom at Fink’s home.

Hashe said the sheriff’s office was notified that morning and launched an investigation into multiple injuries found on the child that were inconsistent with a fall.

Fink is not related to the child, but was the sole caretaker on the morning of the incident, Hashe said. The child was still hospitalized at the end of last week and continues to be treated for traumatic head injuries, according to Hashe.
