Police say an Alice day-care center has been closed and the facility's operator faces charges after a child was tied up with duct tape.
Doctors on Thursday checked out the three-year-old boy, as a precaution.
Police are investigating Wednesday's incident at the A-B-C Kittie College Daycare Center.
Investigators are trying to determine why the boy was taped at his ankles and wrists -- and whether it had happened before.
Daycare owner 40-year-old Arleen Aguilar is free on bond after being charged with injury to a child.
Police chief Daniel Bueno says he didn't think such a thing could happen in Alice.
Alice is about 40 miles west of Corpus Christi.
