The Richland County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a mother’s claim that her child was stabbed in the arm with a pencil by a day care worker.
The incident happened Monday at the Word of God Church on Garners Ferry Road. According to an incident report, the mother – whose name was not released – noticed puncture wounds on her son’s arm.
The boy told his mother that he had gotten in trouble that day for poking a friend with a pencil, and a day care worker had poked him to show him how it felt. The boy said the worker told him not to tell his mother.
