A six-month-old child was left badly bruised and suffered a bleed on the brain after he was allegedly beaten at his Kansas daycare center. The infant also had a "hand-shaped" bruise on his forehead and face, according to reports.

According to the baby's parents, little Glen Braun came home from the Shawnee facility last Thursday after suffering from sickness with "puke all over himself." He also had a red mark down the side of his face.

The baby's mother, Sarah, said that her son had been healthy and happy when she dropped him and his sister off at the facility in the morning. However, she added, that by the time she picked him up that evening, the child was suffering from severe sickness and appeared bruised. 

"The daycare lady was holding Glen, and my son had puke all over himself and she said he has been throwing up. He threw up all over his Pack 'n Play, all over another kid," Sarah told Fox4KC

The baby's father, Brett Braun, said: "As soon as I started holding him, he vomited all over me. He had a red mark on his face." The couple reportedly rushed to the hospital after Glen continued to throw up overnight and the doctor later told them that their baby was suffering from a brain bleed.

"The head C.T. showed that he had a brain bleed. From there they told us there were signs of abuse. They got the police involved and child services," Brett said. "I was absolutely devastated. I mean he is six-months-old. I don't know how anyone could ever hit him or do anything to him."

Sarah, after confronting the daycare owner, said that she "made excuses" for her son's injuries. The owner has not yet been charged with any crime related to the case.

"She made excuses, saying maybe she was out of the room and another kid did this," she added.

"It was really hard. The kids are my whole life. My family is my whole world," Sarah said.

The daycare center's license was suspended by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment after the case came to light. 

The facility is now being investigated as a battery with personal weapons by police, suggesting that the baby was hit with hands or feet. The evidence of the probe will be handed over to the Johnson County District Attorney by police for further proceedings.
