Updated 12:25 p.m.: A woman from the Wheaton-Glenmont area has been charged with child abuse after police obtained a video of her allegedly slapping and pushing a 2-year-old child to the floor, Montgomery County police said.

Christina Dhanaraj, 65, has provided child care in her home in the 1600 block of Winding Waye Lane for about 10 years, and police are concerned there may be additional victims, police said Tuesday.

Police arrested Dhanaraj on Jan. 12 after receiving a video that day that reportedly documents the abuse.

In the video, a 2-year-old girl is sitting quietly in Dhanaraj’s home when Dhanaraj approaches her and scolds her, according to court documents. Dhanaraj then slaps her in the face with an open hand eight times, causing the child to cry, police wrote.

She then reportedly pushes the child to the floor and “grabs the victim by the head, and pushes the victim with a jerking motion,” which caused the girl to fall out of a seated position, according to police. Detectives believe the incident occurred in November or December.

Sgt. Rebecca Innocenti, a police department spokeswoman, said Tuesday the video was produced by an adult who was at the home at the time of the incident.

“They saw the abuse, videotaped it and came forward to police,” she said.

After Dhanaraj was arrested, she allegedly told police she committed the abuse captured in the video. Dhanaraj was charged with second-degree child abuse.

The girl had been enrolled in Dhanaraj’s day care service since June, 2015, according to court documents.

Police said they worked with the Maryland Office of Child Care to revoke her child care provider license. Bill Reinhard, a spokesman for the Maryland State Department of Education, confirmed that an emergency suspension was issued on her license Jan. 17.

Dhanaraj was released on bail on Jan. 16, according to court records. She will return Feb. 9 to the District Court for Montgomery County in Rockville for a preliminary hearing.

Police have asked anyone with information about possible abuse related to Dhanaraj to call Special Victims Investigations at 240-773-5400.
