Rebecca Isham

A female daycare worker, whose name has not yet been released, was arrested today after police viewed a video allegedly showing her manhandling a child and putting a blanket over its face, according to Police Interim Public Information Officer Jeramie Garcia.

The daycare, Oak Tree Academy, at 131 N. Anthony St., showed police the footage. There are three possible victims, according to Garcia.

Patrol officers are still at the scene, but Investigations officers are en route.

DHS has been notified.

UPDATE: The suspect’s name is Rebecca Isham. The daycare’s owner said she has been fired.

Attorney Rusty Smith, who is representing Hannah Long, the child’s mother, sent the following statement: “In light of the criminal filings today and the commencement of what is certain to be a complete and thorough investigation by the appropriate authorities, Ms. Long has no comment, at least until those proceedings and the evidence is further developed. But I will say that I expect the evidence to speak for itself and, with respect to ‘proportionality,’ we will proceed forward with a manner that is proportionate to what appears to every parent’s worst nightmare.”
