Daycare worker accused of abusing 2 toddlers in Jersey City
JERSEY CITY -- Prosecutors have filed child abuse and child endangerment charges against a northern New Jersey daycare center worker who allegedly injured two toddlers.
Bail was set Wednesday at $100,000 for 26-year-old Ann Bactawar of Jersey City. She faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of the charges.
Prosecutors say Bactawar allegedly upended a boy who was standing on a box at the Sunnyside Academy Daycare Center in Jersey City. Authorities were contacted after a center administrator showed the boy's father a video of the incident.
Further investigation led authorities to charge Bactawar with the abuse of another boy at the center. Prosecutors say the toddlers suffered bruises, cuts and bleeding.
Bactawar did not enter a plea during a brief court appearance on Wednesday.
