A Bend day care operator is facing charges for allegedly assaulting a four year old girl in her care last month. Deanna McDowell, 50, operator of Gramma Dee's Daycare was indicted on charges of first degree criminal mistreatment and third degree assault. Apparently, on March 15th, when Kaylynn Fortier picked up her two children from the day care, she found them unhappy. When she got home, her six year old son told her that McDowell was angry with the four year old girl and took her into a bathroom and struck her numerous times. Fortier found bruises and welts on her daughters’ buttocks and legs. She reported the abuse to police who arrested McDowell later that night. She is due to be arraigned in Deschutes County Circuit Court on April 13th.
