Three US day care workers videotaped a fight between 3-year-old boys and encouraged the toddlers to punch each other as they laughed, according to court documents.
The women were charged Monday after Dover police obtained a cellphone video of the March 6 incident. Officials suspended the license of their employer, Hands of Our Future day care center. Tiana Harris, Estefania Myers and Lisa Parker face charges of felony assault and conspiracy, along with several misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Police allege the video taken by Harris shows one child screaming, crying and holding his face while being punched by the other, who is also punched and shoved into a table. During the fight, Parker allegedly grabbed one boy and forced him to continue. Harris and Myers are shown and heard laughing, police said.
