Glen Braun Kansas 6 month old baby boy allegedly abused at Shawnee daycare home as facility is shut down pending investigation.
Disconcert has come to the fore after a six-month-old baby boy suffered a bleed on the brain and was left with a ‘hand shaped’ bruise after allegedly being beaten at his Kansas daycare center.
Glen Braun came home from the Shawnee daycare home facility on Thursday suffering from sickness with ‘puke all over himself’, according to his parents.
He also had a red mark down the side of his face.
His mom Sarah said her young son had been happy and healthy when she dropped him and his sister off in the morning.
That all changed later that evening with the infant suffering from severe sickness with Sarah noticing her son sporting a hand shaped bruise on his head.
Alleged victim’s father: ‘I don’t really know what to say. We did all the proper steps’.
Told the boy’s mother via Fox4KC: ‘The daycare lady was holding Glen, and my son had puke all over himself and she said he has been throwing up. He threw up all over his Pack ‘n Play, all over another kid.’
Added, the baby’s dad, Brett Braun: ‘As soon as I started holding him, he vomited all over me. He had a red mark on his face.’
Glen’s parents rushed the infant child to hospital after continuing to throw up overnight with a doctor confirming Glen having a brain bleed.
Added Brett: ‘The head C.T. showed that he had a brain bleed. From there they told us there were signs of abuse. They got the police involved and child services.
‘I was absolutely devastated. I mean he is six-months-old. I don’t know how anyone could ever hit him or do anything to him.’
‘I don’t really know what to say. We did all the proper steps,’ Brett Braun told via WTVR. ‘We went on the state website. We interviewed her. We did everything we should. I don’t know the right answer.’
Will criminal charges be made against Shawnee Daycare?
After confronting the daycare owner, who has not been charged with any crime, Sarah said she ‘made excuses’ for her son’s injuries.
She added: ‘She made excuses, saying maybe she was out of the room and another kid did this.’
The Shawnee daycare, which has not been named, saw it license suspended by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
It is being investigated as a battery with personal weapons by police, indicating the child was hit with hands or feet.
Sarah added: ‘It was really hard. The kids are my whole life. My family is my whole world.’
Police will hand over evidence to the Johnson County District Attorney who will then decide if criminal charges will be filed.
