Temple Hills Woman Accused Of Assaulting Toddlers At Daycare Center

A Temple Hills woman is accused of assaulting toddlers at the military daycare center where she worked.

Prosecutors say 47-year-old Va Nessa Taylor was seen on surveillance footage hitting and pushing four different young children.

The investigation at the Child Development Center on Joint-Base Henderson Hall in Arlington began after a co-worker reported that she had seen Taylor withholding a 2-year-old's lunch. The center serves civilian and military families who work at the Pentagon, Fort Myer-Henderson and Fort McNair.

Taylor is being charged with misdemeanor assault for the alleged incidents, which occured between January and November of last year. Authorites say none of the children appeared to suffer physical injuries.

In 2012, three workers at the center were charged with misdemeanor assault on allegations of punching, pinching and hitting young children. Two were convicted.
