Day care shut down after abuse report

A Juneau day care lost its license after the Juneau Police Department served a search warrant on a residence Wednesday, according to a release from the department.

JPD obtained the warrant after two 4-year-old boys reported receiving bruises from the daycare provider. JPD officers served the warrant at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, accompanied by state child care licensing officials, the report states. Three children were in the home when JPD arrived. Their parents were notified and came to pick them up before leaving, the release states.

The JPD release does not name the daycare in question. The provider is described only as a 40-year-old Juneau woman. Two charges of misdemeanor assault against the woman have been forwarded to the City Attorney’s Office, and the JPD investigation continues.
