A local day care has been shut down and the operator may be facing charges after two 4-year old boys reported getting bruises last week.
A search warrant for the facility was served on Wednesday. State Child Care Licensing officials who accompanied officers revoked the day care’s license.
Officers say three children still at the day care on Wednesday afternoon were retrieved by their parents.
Juneau Police did not identify which daycare facility was shut down, only that it was located at the 6500 block of Glacier Highway.

Potential charges of misdemeanor assault have been forwarded to CBJ prosecutors against the operator – identified by police only as a 40-year old Juneau woman — but those charges have not filed yet.
