VICKSBURG, Miss. - Surveillance video retrieved from Kiddie City Childcare Center in Vicksburg, Miss., shows a 9-year-old boy punching a toddler in the face and kicking another. All of the child's actions went unnoticed by attendants for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, KLTV reports.
Local news station WLBT interviewed the young boy's aunt, Vinia Dolley, who said she was shocked to see her nephew's actions.
"He bad. He fight but he don't fight little babies. He do also have a problem. He take medicine every day and he just a normal child," Dolley told WLBT. "I feel bad about him jumping on a two year-old baby, he 9 years old. He don't fight his own 2-year-old brother like that or cousins."
Jamie Williams, a parent of one of the girls the boy attacked, was angered by the situation and slapped a boy he thought was responsible. But he reportedly slapped the wrong boy and was later arrested, according to the station.
Sandra Trevillion, a former day care worker, was also arrested. She is being held on $2,656 bond, KSEE-24 News reported. The boy responsible for the attacks was also kicked out of the day care.
The news gained attention after the video was posted on Reddit. Reddit users dubbed the child a "demon" and questioned why he was allowed to be with younger children while unsupervised.
Day care horrors are a harsh reality.
In January, a former day care instructor in Pittsburgh pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting 12 boys between the ages of six and 17 over a period of several years, many of whom he met while working as an instructor at Tender Care Learning Center in Scott Township, south of Pittsburgh.
