The state Department of Health and Human Services reportedly suspended the license of Sonja M. Merrick, 5268 W. Redberry Lane, effective immediately, a spokeswoman said Wednesday.
"As long as her license is suspended, she cannot provide child care to any children other than her own," HHS spokeswoman Marla Augustine said reportedly in a news release.
Lincoln Police Officer Katie Flood reportedly said an officer cited Merrick, 42, on March 2. Court records do not list any charges filed.
The injured 2-year-old boy reportedly had bruising that "was consistent with an adult squeezing or holding down the waist area of the victim from the front, leaving thumb/finger-sized bruises on either side of the waist," Flood said.
