A Cleveland daycare worker was just indicted after a disturbing attack on a 2-year-old boy was caught on video.
Melissa Tate worked at the Cedar Early Learning Center on Cedar Avenue in Cleveland. She faces an endangering children charge after accusations surfaced.
Back in October, the 49-year-old employee was seen on the daycare’s surveillance video manhandling and hitting the toddler nearly two dozen times with a wooden back scratcher. Tate was then seen throwing the boy on a changing table. The attack left the young child with bruises and welts.
Tate was fired from the center after the abuse was reported to Cleveland Police.
