    Mom Demands Answers for Son's Scratches and Bruises

    NBC 7's Omari Fleming reports on one woman's concerns regarding injuries to her son and prior complaints about the day care where the child was enrolled.

    (Published Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2018)

    San Diego police are investigating claims made by a mother that her toddler was injured at a home day care. 

    Unique Wilson is on a mission to get justice for her 17-month-old son, Royal, after she says he returned from a home day care with scratches and bruises all over his face.

    With tears in her eyes, Wilson said she’s angry.

    “My heart is broken for my kid," she told NBC 7. 

    Wilson said her son suffered the injuries Wednesday. She says when she picked up her two sons from a Linda Vista day care, both sons ran towards her and one of the caregivers started explaining the injuries on Royal’s face.

    A doctor's summary that Wilson provided to NBC 7 notes the bruises are consistent with an injury such as a slap.

    Though shoes were outside the home day care on Annrae Street, no one answered the door to NBC 7. Two answered calls ended in dial tone after the reporter identified himself.

    A 2016 physical abuse complaint filed against the day care with the Department of Social Services was found “inconclusive.”

    The mother who filed it shared pictures of her child's injuries on her chest and back. 

    And in late 2017 there was a complaint the licensee failed to properly supervise a child resulting in questionable death.

    That allegation was found to be “unsubstantiated.”

    Though San Diego police said they’re investigating Wilson’s claim, a spokesperson with the Department of Social Services said they can’t tell NBC 7 if a complaint has been filed.
