An arrest was made after disturbing videos that were widely viewed on social media Friday appeared to show different children being abused at a day care facility in Prince George’s County, FOX5 reports. Additional information available below, courtesy of the Prince George’s County Police Department:

The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Child and Vulnerable Adult Abuse Unit arrested and charged an employee for abusing children in her care at a daycare center in Oxon Hill. The suspect is 23-year-old Kayla Greenwell of Oxon Hill.   On April 7, 2023, the PGPD received multiple videos showing the suspect assaulting children at the center. Investigators immediately responded to the business in the 6000 block of Oxon Hill Road. Detectives gathered evidence, identified the suspect and ultimately obtained an arrest warrant. 

The preliminary investigation revealed the suspect recorded herself abusing the children on her cell phone on April 5, 2023. Greenwell began her employment at the center in late March. Greenwell is charged with multiple counts of child abuse and assault. She is in the custody of the Department of Corrections.

PGPD would like to thank Fox5 News for immediately forwarding the video to our Media Relations Division and holding off on airing the video.
