Police in Fredericksburg, Texas, are investigating allegations of child abuse at a daycare center run from a home, according to local reports.
Child Protective Services is looking into the matter after police received a report on Thursday, Jan. 18.
“I never expected for my son to have to go through something like this,” said the mother, who remained anonymous, according to News4 in San Antonio.
The mother of the boy said she started taking her boy to the daycare earlier this week. On Wednesday, she found bruises on him.
According to the mother, the owner of the daycare told her that a board got loose. “Somehow this board had come off of her porch step and he fell, or the board hit him,” she said, according to Dearly.com. She also sent the mother a video of the broken steps.
“That’s whenever I saw this bruise and I kind of freaked out,” she said of seeing a bruise on the boy’s back.
The next day, when she attempted to drop her son off at the daycare, her son “lost it.”
“He fought me in the car seat when I was trying to get him out. He was terrified to go in there,” she said.
She took her son to the emergency room instead.
“They literally pulled his pants down — two seconds later, said ‘that’s not a fall,’” the mother said of what the nurses told her.
“I never expected for my son to have to go through something like this.”
