A daycare provider in Buffalo is facing criminal charges after she said she became aggravated and hurt an 11-month-old girl, court documents say.
WCCO reports 48-year-old Robbin Kay Rollag is charged with three counts of third-degree assault, two counts of malicious punishment of a child and one count of child neglect.
According to the criminal complaint, the child's mother brought her daughter to the doctor after she was unusually fussy and wouldn't crawl or bear weight on her right foot.
Doctors discovered the baby suffered a leg fracture, bruising and other abrasions. Authorities were notified.
When questioned by police, Rollag initially had no explanation for how the baby was hurt and later claimed the child was injured while sledding.
On Monday, Rollag met with authorities again and eventually admitted to abusing the baby "because she got to me," the complaint states.
Rollag admitted to pushing the child down, hitting and pinching her, and dropping her, KARE 11 reports.
She said the baby's leg injury occurred when Rollag tripped and dropped the child, who fell on top of her.
If convicted, each of the six counts carries up to five years in prison.
According to the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Rollag's daycare license was temporarily suspended on Monday.
