Employee of children’s center arrested in connection with battery of teen

Officers arrested an employee of a local children’s center Monday in connection with the battery of a 13-year-old teen at the center.

A 13-year-old resident of the Daniel F. and Ada L. Rice Child + Family Center reported to family members that she had been the victim of battery by an employee, Parrott said. She said the incident had taken place on Oct. 22. The teen’s family reported the case to the Illinois Department of Children & Family Services in November, and DCFS in turn transferred the case to the EPD. An EPD detective investigated the case and arrested the employee Jan. 20, Parrott said. The employee is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 3.
