FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. – A North Carolina father is asking for charges to be brought against his child’s day care, after his son’s face was reportedly scrubbed raw.
WTVD reported that dramatic images of his son’s red, sore face are now being used as evidence in a police investigation.
Agustin Luna claims his son, also named Agustin, was badly injured on Friday, May 13 at Little Angels Preparatory School in Fuquay-Varina.
Luna said Agustin and his little brother drew on each other with magic markers the night before.
“I washed them at home, it don’t come off,” Luna told the TV station. “I couldn’t take the marker off their skin.”
When he dropped the boys off at day care on Friday morning, Luna said he told the teacher what happened. He never expected the teacher would try to scrub the marker off his son’s face.
Luna shared pictures with WTVD of what Agustin looked like when Luna picked him up Friday evening.
Luna took Agustin to the hospital, filed a police report, and called an attorney. Agustin told his father the teacher scrubbed his face with a brush and soap and wouldn’t stop even when he cried.
“I told him, ‘Why didn’t you run away from her?’ He say, ‘She was holding me. She was holding me in my arm and I told her to stop, I told her that it was hurting me. And she say, ‘No, stop crying!”” Luna said.
