Day care worker accused of hitting, shaking children
ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in central Florida say a former day care worker has been arrested after being caught on security video hitting, slapping and shaking children.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports 65-year-old Katherine Weitz was arrested Monday and has since been released from jail. She’s charged with three felony counts of activity that could result in physical or mental harm to a child.
An affidavit says Dream City Academy’s office manager Yolanda Tomlinson checked a security video in a classroom for 1-year-olds after a child was crying. She saw Weitz treating a child roughly.
Police say Tomlinson called a manager who fired Weitz.
Weitz told investigators she lost her temper.
Authorities say none of the children suffered any injuries.
A lawyer for Weitz wasn’t listed on court records.
