Delaware Daycare Worker Accused of Assaulting Infant

Posted: 10/05/2017 07:47:00 -04:00 Updated:

NEWARK, Del. (AP)- State Police have charged a Delaware day care employee with assaulting an 11-month-old girl.

Authorities say 31-year-old Amber R. Worthy of New Castle turned herself in Wednesday and was charged with one count of first-degree child abuse. She was released on $20,000 bond. It was not immediately clear whether she has a lawyer.

Investigators say Worthy submitted an incident report to the director at Happy Kids Academy in Newark, Delaware, last Wednesday advising that while she was repositioning the infant, she heard a crack in her foot.

Police say an investigation revealed that while trying to get the girl to sleep, Worthy repeatedly hit her on the back and buttocks, shook her legs and at one point intentionally twisted her right leg.

Authorities say the infant suffered a broken leg.
