Daycare under investigation after infant is attacked


A Nashvile, Arkansas daycare is under investigation after a baby is attacked while in their care. The family searching for answers.

“I just started crying because I’m like how. You’re telling me a two year old did this,” Alize Murphy, sister. Murphy describes her reaction after seeing her nine month old brother who was attacked at Alphabet Academy  Daycare.

Daycare workers saying another child climbed into his playpen. Then bit and scratched him.”How was you not able to hear him cry. Not even cry. You didn’t hear him screaming,” said Murphy. Murphy’s mother counting over 30 bites and scratches on her child from head to toe.

“If you’re saying another child did this then there’s obviously lack of supervision. And I wouldn’t want anybody else to take their child there,” said Murphy.

We reached out to the daycare, but employees declined to comment. They’re currently under investigation by the Nashville Police Department.

“Right now we’re just collecting any interviews and evidence to substantiate that’s what happened, said Larry Marion.”

Murphy sharing their story to warn others of what can happen. “I just pray people look more into the daycare they take their kids to. Or the people who runs the daycare because I don’t want to see this happen to anybody else,” said Murphy.

They Arkansas Department of Human Services is currently investigating the complaint and a licensing investigation is currently open.

Immediate corrective action has been issued for the daycare. No caregivers can be alone with the children at anytime.
