Teacher and Teacher’s Aide Allegedly Assaulted, Bruised a Preschooler
Two preschool employees in Alexandria, Virginia allegedly hurt a 4-year-old girl. Teacher Lisa Campbell, 38, and teacher’s aide Cherie Evette Diggs, 40, have been charged with misdemeanor assault and battery, according to an official statement.
Fairfax County police and Child Protective Services started looking into it after the victim’s mother told cops that she’d found bruises on her daughter’s arms. The kid was allegedly attacked on April 21.
Police issued arrest warrants, but Diggs turned herself in on Tuesday, and Campbell on Wednesday. Their employers at James L. & Juliette McNeil Preschool Academy told cops they’ve been fired.
But investigators worry there could be more victims. They invite anyone with information to visit the Crime Solvers site, call 1-866-411-TIPS, cops at 703-691-2131, or text “TIP187” and your message to 274637
