RICHARDSON, TX (WCMH)– The child’s mom said the visible purple and red marks on her son’s face resemble an adult’s hand.
“His swelling and stuff has started to go down… this doesn’t look like a 2-year-old could’ve done this,” Elizabeth O’Rear, 21, told KTVT about the marks on her 18-month-old son Dakota’s face.
After three days, the marks are still visible on Dakota’s face. O’Rear noticed them when she picked him from the Richardson, Texas, daycare Armadillos to Zebras.
O’Rear filed a complaint with Richardson police, after taking Dakota to the emergency room.
“It started to look more like a hand and I called my mom and I told her this sort of looks funny to me,” she KTVT.
According to O’Rear, barring an acceptable explanation, Dakota will not be returning to the daycare.
