Boynton Beach Daycare Worker Arrested

Boynton Beach police arrested Amelia Jones, 31, on Monday afternoon for the second time in two weeks after seeing surveillance video of her pulling one child by the arm and grabbing and pushing another child off of a chair.

Jones was first arrested last week after a mother picked up her child from Lighthouse Academy and saw bruises on her child’s arm. The bruises were in the shape of fingers. Jones told police the child had been crying all day and she wanted to calm the child down. Jones was arrested on Monday at her home in Lantana after the recent incidents and has since been fired from the daycare center.
