Kindergarten teacher under investigation for allegedly dragging child by the legs

Police are investigating reports made against a Limassol kindergarten teacher who is alleged to have dragged a five-year-old child in her care some six metres by the legs.

The incident, which was reported by other parents, is said to have occurred on Monday. They say they saw the 58-year-old carer dragging the child from the yard of the Yermasoyia playschool into a classroom.

Limassol CID spokesman Yiannis Sotiriades said the incident was first brought to the attention of the welfare department and subsequently police who are investigating.

“A criminal casefile has now been completed which will be sent to the attorney-general’s office for further consideration and a decision on how it will be handled.”

He said the 58-year-old was questioned and gave some assertions which were being investigated.
