This dad might be more of a child than his 2-year-old stepson.

Luis Matienzo, 19, is accused of ignoring his stepson's cries for help while he played "Grand Theft Auto V" in his Chicago home earlier this month. Police say he knew that the boy had an injury, later found to be a right femur fracture, according to the Chicago Tribune.

It's not clear how the toddler's femur was fractured, ABC News reports. Matienzo allegedly played the video game for two hours and left the boy in his playpen because he was crying.

He eventually stopped playing when he was supposed to pick up his wife. Only then did he take his child to get medical attention, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Matienzo was charged with misdemeanor child endangerment, and ordered held on $1,000 bail on Sunday, Patch reports.
