The brutal attacks were caught
on the daycare center's surveillance camera. According to WLBT
, the rampage occurred at the Kiddie City Childcare Center in Vicksburg. He can clearly be seen abusing the children, even sadistically patting one hysterical girl on the back just after choking her. He repeatedly punches another girl in her face, and repeatedly and violently kicks another little girl whenever staff aren't watching.
Vinia Dolley, the boy's aunt, told WLBT that their family is embarrassed by his behavior and that Kiddie City should be shut down.
"He bad, he fight kids but he don't fight little babies. He do also have a problem, he take medicine every day and he just a normal child," she said.
Vicksburg police arrested Kiddie City employee Sandra Trevillion, who has been charged with contributing to the neglect of a minor. Her bond has been set at $2,656.
"This 9-year-old child, he was allowed to pretty much run roughshod over that entire room for a period of about 15 to 20 minutes. All his action went unnoticed," Vicksburg Police
Chief Walter Armstrong told WLBT.
The parent of one of the boy's victims told WLBT that his daughter had been coming home for about a week with injuries, including a split lip and a bite mark on her chin.
"Don't nobody know nothing at the daycare," dad Jamie Williams lamented. "Nobody know nothing."
Williams went to Kiddie City and struck a child he believed was responsible for the attack on his daughter. It was the wrong child, and Williams was arrested and charged with misdemeanor simple assault.
Vicksburg police have interviewed the boy in the video and his mother. The Department of Human Services is also investigating.
