According to KTXS, the investigation began after the boy’s mother, Tiffany Griffin, was summoned to the daycare Monday afternoon. She arrived to find her son’s face bloodied, scratched, and swollen. The boy’s injuries were so severe that he was hospitalized.
The owner of Kiddiegarden day care, Haben Ghebremichael, told the press that a 2-year-old girl had attacked the boy. Ghebremichael said a worker was able to separate the children, but by that time the child had already been injured.
The daycare is currently closed and it is unclear if or when it will reopen.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, at least six out of ten — nearly 13 million — infants, toddlers and preschool children are enrolled in daycare.
