The Department of Human Services is investigating a report of child abuse in Chickasha. 

Local police officers were dispatched to the Washita Valley Early Childhood Center to assist in the investigation. 

Police Chief Eddie Adamson said although DHS is conducting the investigation, there is no reason to suspect an employee of the center was involved in the incident. 

"An employee discovered some injuries and made a report," Adamson said. 

The child was taken into protective custody while the investigation is conducted. 

A spokesperson for the center declined to comment.
