A Bethpage day care owner has been arrested after police say a 10-month-old boy was seriously injured there.
They say the incident happened in September at Kiddie Academy, owned by 34-year-old Natalie Rose, on Seaman Avenue.
Police say the boy did not receive proper medical treatment for the injury and the state Office of Children and Family Services was called in.
The office conducted an investigation that found Rose allegedly falsified the New York state Incident report.
A neighbor claims that Rose told her she did not witness the incident and merely reported what an employee had said.
Police have not told News 12 how the child is doing.
Nassau County police say Rose faces charges of endangering the welfare of a child and falsifying records.
According to te state Office of Children and Family Services, the day care's license was suspended on Sept. 30, and a mother who used to send her 3-year-old child there says she has not been refunded her $300 deposit.
She also says the day care center gave less than one day's notice before the facility closed.  
The owner was issued an appearance ticket and she's scheduled to be in court on Dec. 17.
