ROMEO, Mich. (WJBK) -

A 26-year-old Washington Township man faces child abuse charges after police say he severely beat his girlfriend's 2-year-old boy inside a Macomb County apartment.

Ronald Dimambro Jr. was arraigned Friday in 42nd District Court on charges of first-degree child abuse.

Family members tell FOX 2 Dimambro repeatedly punched and kicked Damian Sutton, who remains on life support Friday at Children's Hospital of Michigan in Detroit.

"I don't even know how or why you can look at a child and just hurt him that bad," said Damian's mother Nikki Sutton, who was told about the alleged attack while she was at work.

Medical personnel tell the Macomb County Sheriff's Office Damian suffered head trauma consistent with "shaken baby syndrome."

A 42nd District Court judge set Dimambro's bond at $500,000 and ordered that he have no contact with the victim's family.

We'll have much more on this story throughout the afternoon and tonight during FOX 2 News beginning at 5 p.m.
