ALEXANDRIA, VA. — Prosecutors have charged a Maryland woman with misdemeanor assault on a child for allegedly hitting toddlers under her care at a military daycare center.

A complaint filed Thursday at federal court in Alexandria alleges that 47-year-old Va Nessa Taylor of Temple Hills, Md., was seen on surveillance footage hitting and pushing four different children at the Child Development Center on Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Arlington.

The children ranged in age from 18 months to 2 years. Prosecutors say the assaults occurred between January and November. The investigation began after a co-worker reported that she had seen Taylor withholding a 2-year-old’s lunch.

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