By  | 

HOWE, TX -- Howe police are continuing to investigate allegations of child abuse at a local daycare.

Howe Police Chief Carl Hudman says two 3-year-old children are bruised after an 18-year-old female employee of School Zone Academy allegedly picked them up forcefully and dropped them.

Investigators reviewed surveillance video from the daycare and say they saw the employee take inappropriate forceful action with the two children.

Hudman says this is the first complaint they've taken about the daycare and says that the suspect, who's currently suspended from her job, is cooperating with their investigation.

The suspect could face two charges of injury to a child.
