A Stafford County, Virginia, babysitter is accused of hurting a baby.
Lauren Siegel, 36, of Stafford, was arrested last Saturday following a review of video showing her pushing down the head of a 7-month-old into the floor of a playpen.
The video also showed the suspect “forcefully manipulating” the baby’s head to put a pacifier in his mouth, according to a Stafford County Sheriff’s Office news release Friday.
On Sept. 14, the baby’s parents reported that they suspected their baby had been abused when they came home and found a red mark on the side of his face. The parents reviewed video of their living room and saw what happened.
The Stafford County Sheriff’s Office obtained a warrant for assault and battery.
Siegel is held without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail. The baby was checked out by a doctor and no other injuries were found.
