COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Two Worthington Learning Center employees are under arrest after a video surfaced allegedly showing them allow a 5-year-old girl to be bullied right in front of them while they did nothing to stop it.

According to Columbus Police, Emma Dietrich, 31, of Columbus, and Joshua Tennant, 27, of Columbus, are facing child endangerment charges in connection with an incident from Aug. 13.

Police said a video recorded that day show Dietrich and Tennant sitting at a table in a classroom when a student is brought into the room by one of Dietrich’s older students.

The video shows the older students grabbing, pulling, dragging, swinging and “bullying” the girl, who appears frightened and keeps her eyes closed or covered, police said. At one point, the girl attempts to curl up into a fetal position.

Police said the video shows that the young girl tried to get away from the other students, but they grabbed her and held her down.

Police said the video shows Dietrich and Tennant sitting at a table and watching the “bullying” actions of the other students against the young girl. At no time did either Dietrich or Tennant attempt to stop the older students.

According to police, there is a point where Tennant picks up the young girl by her right ankle, grabs her other leg, and carries her upside down, placing her on a rug.

Court documents filed by police state both Dietrich and Tennant allowed the incident to happen as a form of discipline.

According to court records, Tennant has been released from custody after posting bond. He will be arraigned on Sept. 16 in Franklin County Municipal Court.

As of Tuesday evening, Dietrich remains in custody. She is scheduled to be arraigned in municipal court Wednesday morning.

Those two employees should be fired immediately and charged and locked up.

Nor does he seem to be doing it in a playful manner.

That is simply not how one treats a child. Ever.

OH actually has a very strict law about situations involving children for adults who are employed in professions where child well being and safety are their responsibility. They aren't particularly well enforced until a situation comes up where a child is harmed.

JMHO

With the publicity, they’ll most
likely lose their licenses and charged with a crime. Whoever runs that learning Center is probably in very big trouble with the law.

There’s a backstory going unsaid here. The guy looks gay, the “bullies” look minority. Why was this five year old girl singled out and treated as a pariah? Race, political affiliation of her parents, what?
