WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - The parents of a 5-year-old boy have sued a Kernersville day care and a teacher where the boy was assaulted.

The Winston-Salem Journal (https://bit.ly/1EkQWNr) reported that Angel Broughton and Paul Accattato sued the Sugar and Spice Child Enrichment Center, saying it was negligent in hiring a teacher who struck the boy and let another child hit him.

Jacinta Antoinetta Gladden faces charges from the June 17 incident, including negligent child abuse inflicting serious physical injury, intentional child abuse inflicting serious physical injury, assault on a child and two counts of misdemeanor child abuse.

The lawsuit said Gladden hit, threw, grabbed and pushed the child. She’s also accused of encouraging other children to taunt and hit the boy.

Her lawyer did not return a message seeking a comment.
