What led Nataliia Karia a Minnesota daycare worker trying to hang a 16 month old baby boy to death?
Causing disconcert is news of a Minnesota nursery worker intentionally trying to hang a 16 month old child at a local daycare center.
The one year old baby boy only survived after a parent dropping off a different child came across the staggering scene at the Uptown Daycare in the 2700 block of Humboldt Avenue S.
In turn the woman, since identified as 42 year old Minneapolis woman, Nataliia M. Karia fled in a ‘gold minivan’ where a report via the bbc tells of the woman striking two woman, one of whom was dragged on the streets for several blocks, before attempting to take her own life by jumping off an overhead bridge at the 1-94 Interstate.
An effort that was preempted by bystanders who held the daycare worker against her will along the ground. A struggle that continued when Minneapolis Police arrived shortly later.
In the hours after the disturbing sequence of events a report via ibtimes tells of police declining to release a possible motive while saying the child is ‘doing fine.’
Do you suppose?
Since taken into custody, Minneapolis Assistant Police Chief Kris Arneson said that the daycare worker was being evaluated at a local hospital.
Offered Arneson of the assault: ‘It’s horrific, horrific,’
Adding: ‘We never want children to be injured. That’s part of reason we call in our chaplains. It’s a horrific scene for officers to encounter.’
Miraculously the hit-and-run victim who’d been dragged along at the mercy of the daycare worker is said to have broken bones and cuts but was nevertheless expected to survive.
Also injured was a cyclist hit by the fleeing Minnesota nursery worker.
At least six investigators are working on the case, including detectives from the homicide and crimes against children units.
Of note, there were fewer than six children in the nursery at the time of the attack, with the Minneapolis Star Tribune reporting that the day-care facility is registered to Karia, whose license, state records show, was issued in April 2009 and was set to expire next spring. The home is approved to care for up to 12 children.

Of note, a report via KTSP told of documents being filed Friday afternoon to suspend the license. Prior to Friday’s incident there hadn’t been any recorded issues with the daycare.
Police say the Minnesota daycare worker will be booked into the Hennepin County Jail when she is released from the hospital.
