Tiana McElveen, 24, was arrested for hitting a 5-year-old child while working at a daycare facility in the 4200 block of Thomas Sumter Highway
The incident, captured on a surveillance camera, happened after two children reportedly had an altercation over a toy. McElveen appeared to strike one of the children in the face before tossing him to the ground twice. She has since been terminated from her position at the facility and the Department of Social Services was notified.
McElveen was transported to Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center and released after paying a $1,500 bond. She is charged with unlawful conduct towards a child.
