Daycare Workers Allegedly Caught on Camera Pulling Boy from a Mat by the Hair, Pushing & Punching Him: Report

Georgia police are investigating allegations that two daycare teachers abused a young boy.

According to Fox 5 Atlanta, the incident happened at the Clarkston First Baptist Daycare in Clarkston, in the 4000 block of Church Street. Police began investigating after the mother of the child saw security footage at the daycare and filed a report.

Police spoke to the victim’s grandmother on July 6, who reportedly said the child wasn’t acting like his usual self and was “visibly upset.” When they arrived home, the child’s mother saw bruising on his arm that wasn’t there before she dropped him off at daycare that morning.

Initially, the family spoke to the “first church lady” who informed them she watched security footage from the daycare and didn’t notice anything unusual or unacceptable, the outlet reports. However, when the family viewed the footage themselves,  they said they saw two teachers punching him and pulling him after pulling him up from a mat by his hair.

A responding officer watched the video and interviewed one of the teachers but no arrests have been made at this time.
