Theresa Elaine Brown charged with assault and battery for allegedly biting a 13-month-old boy at a Woodbridge school
WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP/WJLA) - A Woodbridge preschool teacher has been charged with assault and battery for allegedly biting a 13-month-old boy in her care.
Police in Prince William County said 24-year-old Theresa Brown of Woodbridge bit the boy after he bit another teacher at The Goddard School.
Police said Monday that Brown left a bite mark on the boy's shoulder.
Police said that a co-owner of the school, 24-year-old Nadia Choudhry of Manassas, was charged with failing to report the Sept. 11 incident to authorities, as required by state law.
The incident came to the attention of police after it was anonymously reported to Child Protective Services.
A phone call to the school was not immediately returned Monday.
Brown's phone number is unlisted, and her attorney in an unrelated matter didn't return a call for comment Monday.
