Sunset Hills police open investigation into daycare over report of child abuse/neglect


Sunset Hills police responded to a report of child abuse and/or neglect at a daycare Tuesday morning, a claim that has so far been unsubstantiated.

The Sunset Hills Police Department responded at 6:43 a.m. Tuesday, May 4, to a daycare facility in the 4300 block of South Lindbergh Boulevard for a report of child abuse and/or child neglect. Police did not name the daycare.

At the time the Police Department sent out a press release about the call just before 5 p.m. Tuesday, those claims were unsubstantiated, the department said.

Sunset Hills police are working with the Missouri Department of Children and Family Services to conduct a “thorough investigation,” Sgt. Jeff Senior said in a news release.

If anyone has any information on this active investigation, they are asked to contact the Sunset Hills Detective Bureau at 314-849-4400.
