These pictures are truly heartbreaking. Who on earth would find enjoyment from beating up a child?
This beautiful one-year-old boy was left beaten and bloodied after he was attacked at his daycare center in Indiana.
Little baby Jesse Harris IV also suffered cuts to his face and both of his eyes. The barbaric incident led to his hospitalization.
His mom – Tiffany Griffin – was so furious when she saw her precious baby’s face she punched an employee at the Kiddie Garden daycare in Indianapolis on Monday.
Griffin said she was called to return to the daycare center just hours after she dropped off Jesse and her older son, according to Fox 59.
As she rushed back to the daycare center, she heard her little boy screaming.
A 22-year-old employee claimed that a two-year-old girl had hurt Jesse. But upon seeing her son’s vicious injuries, she knew this could not have been done by another kid.
Tiffany did what a lot of parent’s would do in her situation – she punched the 22-year-old employee.
The angry mom filmed a Facebook Live video to show the extent of her son’s injuries.
‘This is how my baby looks, this other baby got blood all on her,’ she said. ‘This is my son, this is what happens at childcare!’
‘It’s no way a baby, a two year old, and that baby was small and she didn’t look like she was the violent type,’ Tiffany told Fox 59.
‘Her mom said she wasn’t the violent type and her mom said scratches her baby might do, but when she saw that picture [of Jesse’s face] she started crying.’
‘She said her baby wouldn’t do anything like that.’
The police report now lists the 22-year-old woman as a suspect, and Kiddie Garden has revealed she has since been fired.
‘We are deeply saddened about what took place yesterday afternoon to Jesse,’ a statement from the owner of KiddieGarden said.
Haben Ghebremichel added: ‘Kiddiegarden has never had any accusations of abuse or maltreatment from any of our children or parents. This was truly a sad, shocking and unfortunate event.’
She said the center has been ‘diligently working with law enforcement, child protective services, as well as state agencies’ following the incident.
‘We have been fully cooperative and transparent with law enforcement to complete their investigation,’ she added.
‘Our hearts go out to Jesse and his family and are praying for his well being.’
The police have yet to arrest or change anyone.
Tiffany Griffin says the incident has made her question whether she can ever leave her baby in the care of others again.
