      A Fredericksburg babysitter faces felony charges for allegedly abusing four young children.

      Police say the parents noticed bruises on their 18-month-old child Saturday. The children, ages 18 months through 6 years, had been watched by Warren Whistleman, a family friend, the day before.

      A grand jury Monday indicted Whistleman, 56, on four counts of felony child abuse/neglect and one count of attempted malicious wounding. He is being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
