WHEAT RIDGE - Wheat Ridge police are investigating a startling case of child abuse.
Dennis Sage was arrested last week after police say he seriously hurt a 2-year-old boy in his care.
In addition to having injuries all over his body, doctors say the toddler had severe traumatic brain injuries.
Sage told police that his friends - who are addicted to meth - left the boy in his care. He says he was in the process of trying to adopt the child.
His next court date is in July.
