A local mother is outraged after learning her son was beaten at the hands of someone at his Indianapolis day care.Now that 1-year-old is in the hospital as doctors work to see just how severe his injuries are.
Tiffany Griffin says she could hear her baby boy screaming when she arrived to the Kiddiegarden day care on 38th Street and Oxford Monday afternoon. She says she got a call from the day care a few hours after she dropped off baby Jesse and her older son.
Baby Jesse has cuts to his face and both of his eyes and lips were swollen.
Tiffany admits to punching the 22-year-old day care worker out of anger and now the police report lists that worker as the suspect. But the worker told Tiffany another child assaulted Jesse. “It’s no way a baby, a 2-year-old and that baby was small and she didn’t look like she was the violent type and her mom said she wasn’t the violent type and her mom said scratches her baby might do but when seen that picture she started crying and said her baby wouldn’t do anything like that,” Tiffany said.
FOX59 went to the Kiddiegarden to try to get some answers. No one came to the door. We did reach the owner via phone and was told “no comment.” The owner later called us back to say the worker who was watching Jesse and the other children at the time of the incident has been fired.
