Prosecutors have charged a 20-year-old man with the beating of a 3-year-old girl.
Shawn Bangloy, who was charged Saturday with assault, was being held in lieu of $40,000 bail. His initial appearance is today in District Court.
Bangloy was said to be the boyfriend of the child's mother, 19-year-old Monica Bianca Villa of Kalihi, who was charged Thursday with endangering the welfare of a minor.
The child was brought to Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women & Children with "unexplained injuries," and the hospital notified police.
Lt. David Kamai, head of police child-abuse investigations, said the child's injuries do not appear to be life-threatening but are severe enough to classify the case initially as a first-degree assault.

Florencio Sumaoang Cudal was being held in lieu of $11,000 bail for assault. Police said he punched the woman, 43, in the face Thursday at a friend's home, knocking her out.
The woman reported the attack to police the next day after a doctor determined she had a broken jaw.
SUSPECT TRIES TO FLEE IN OCEANPolice and Fire Department personnel fished an armed-robbery suspect out of the ocean off Kea'au Beach Park around 10:45 a.m. yesterday after the man dived into the sea while fleeing from officers responding to a call in Makaha.
Police said the 22-year-old man, wanted on two outstanding parole-revocation warrants totalling $22,000, didn't resist as he was taken aboard a Honolulu Fire Department vessel. He had spent more than an hour in the water.
HFD had sent a boat and personal watercraft to the scene, responding to a police call for assistance.
The captured fugitive, who has eight convictions, according to Hawai'i Criminal Justice Data Center records, was arrested for investigation of an armed robbery of an acquaintance yesterday.
