A Mother is demanding answers following a horrifying incident at a local Tucson, Arizona daycare center.
According to Rare.us, A Tucson, Arizona mother is demanding answers after her child was bitten more than two dozen times while at daycare! Yes, two dozen times. Alicia Martin was shocked to find the bite marks on their 15-month-old daughter’s body after a day at Creative Beginnings Preschool.
The mother didn’t notice the little girl had the bites until she took her clothes off while changing her at home.
Martin recalled the incident through a Facebook post, saying she began to start counting the bites, but stopped at 25, and ultimately started to cry.
“It’s stomach-turning. It feels both angry and sad at the same time,” said Alicia Martin.
Martin was shocked to find what was on her 15-month-old daughter’s body after a day at Creative Beginnings Preschool. She said she didn’t find the marks, hidden underneath her daughter’s clothes, until she was changing her at home.
“At first, I was like ‘are those really bite marks?’ And then, my brain kinda stopped thinking and I started crying,” said Alice Martin. “There’s over 25 plus, it’s hard to tell. 25 would be the minimum that the police officer and I discussed.”
The Tucson Police Department said officers took an initial report and the Crime Scene Unit took photos the day the incident occurred. Officers stated the bites appeared to be from another child.
TPD Child Physical Abuse Unit have been investigated the case, but no arrest or charges have been made as of Monday, April 29. The incident occurred on February 26, 2019. Martin and her husband, who are both former Marines, said they chose the facility because it was accredited, and close to their work and the University of Arizona where Martin is enrolled.
The daycare has yet to release a statement, and have declined to make any comment about the situation. But, Arizona Department of Health Services did say that they were investigating the incident and the daycare is working with law enforcement.
Despite it being two months later, the investigation has not been completed and “ADHS cannot comment on a pending investigation.”
