Daycare Worker Charged with Assaulting 3-Year-Old

Posted: Updated:
SALISBURY, Md. (AP/WBOC) - A worker at a Salisbury church's daycare center has been charged with assaulting a 3-year-old boy in her care.

Forty-seven-year-old Fay Bartley, of Fruitland, has been charged on a criminal summons this week with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and contributing to the condition of a child. Staffers at Emmanuel Wesleyan Church declined to comment on the case, but say Bartley no longer works there.

In a statement released on Friday, Center officials say Emmanuel Wesleyan provides a nurturing and caring Christian environment for children. Also, it would be inappropriate for the Center to comment since the matter is currently in litigation.
According to charging documents, the video from April 3 shows Bartley yanking the boy from a time-out chair by his arm and dropping him on the floor, then placing him in a chair and straddling him. The boy was taken to an area hospital and diagnosed with a wrist sprain.

The police report states Bartley denied ever purposely harming a child and was unaware of injuries.
