Mother files suit after child bitten during naptime

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A southwest Arkansas woman filed a civil lawsuit this week against her child’s former daycare and it’s owner.

According to records filed in Miller County Circuit Court, Latoya Griffin filed a suit against Alphabet Academy and its owner, Dominique Lofton. The suit alleged Griffin’s 11-month-old son was bitten several times by another child who had climbed into the playpen earlier this year.
