North Carolina daycare denies abuse

NC_daycareabuse0519_1500x845 (WRAL) — A North Carolina father is accusing a daycare of physically abusing his 4-year-old son after he says employees went too far when they were cleaning the boy’s face.

Agustin Luna, a single father of two, has filed a police report and is demanding an investigation after he found his son, Agustin’s, face red and bruised after picking him up from a Fuquay-Varina daycare center on May 13.

“Seeing my son like that, that was terrible,” Luna said.

Luna said his two boys were playing with markers and had written all over each other and he couldn’t get the markings off by the time he dropped them off at Little Angles Preparatory school the next morning. Luna said he told daycare employees not to worry about the markings, because he would take care of it when the boys got home, but around mid-day, he said he got a call from the daycare center.

“She says she washed Agustin’s face. She says it’s going to be a little bit red, I put medicine on it, I put Neosporin,” Luna said of his conversation with the teacher.
