The baby, Zuri Ormond, was injured when the owner of J & A Nursery fell down some stairs while holding her, mom Anari Ormond alleges.
The daycare, located in the basement of a home on Eastern Parkway, was closed for operating without a license. Its owner, Lisa Muhammad, was also cited for multiple violations, including failure to provide a fire exit.
Muhammad is expected to appear in court again on the code violations next month. Ormond is pushing for criminal charges, and prosecutors are investigating, CBS also reported.
