FONTANA -- Police arrested a Fontana couple this week after their 3-year-old foster child was found suffering from second-degree aerosol burns.
Robert Ismael, 35, and Emily Ismael, 29, were booked into West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga. Robert Ismael was held on suspicion of child abuse and his wife is suspected of child endangerment, police said.
Officers came to Loma Linda University Medical Center on Monday due to a Children and Family Services child abuse investigation. Doctors found aerosol burns across the child’s body. The burns were not self-inflicted.

The Ismaels, who live in the 7500 block of West Heritage Parkway, were taken into custody and admitted to the crime.
