Rapid City man arrested and charged for abusing child


News Staff - February 11, 2020

RAPID CITY, S.D. - Rapid City police say a man has been arrested and charged with abusing and seriously injuring a 3-year-old boy.

Authorities say 34-year-old Nathan Saunders is charged with two counts of aggravated child abuse, causing “major injuries.” The abuse reportedly occurred over two days, Friday and Saturday.

Police went to a home on 300 block of Fairmont Boulevard around 11:25 p.m. Saturday, after the child was admitted to the hospital with serious injuries. That is where Saunders was arrested.

Saunders is not physically related to the child but reportedly had a relationship with a family member.

Saunders is also charged with using methamphetamine and a parole violation. He was on parole after serving part of a sentence for drug use.

Saunders was booked into the Pennington County Jail early Sunday morning, where he is being held under a half-million-dollar bond.

The child's condition is not known.
