ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Officials say they have suspended the license of an Albuquerque day care amid allegations of children being treated inappropriately.

A New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department spokesman said Friday that Eastern Child Development Center’s license is being suspended as authorities conduct an investigation into reports of misconduct in the day care’s infant room.

Albuquerque Police Chief Gordon Eden says officers are supporting CYFD in the investigation, and the department has opened a criminal case into alleged misconduct at the day care.

He says officers have identified a person of interest, but no arrests have been made.

Police spokeswoman Celina Espinoza declined to provide further details about the investigation, except to say the accusations against the day care are not sex abuse allegations.

The daycare did not immediately respond to request for comment Friday afternoon.
