NJ educator arrested and charged with violent handling of children

EGG HARBOR TWP. – Surveillance footage recorded at a day care center in December led to the arrest on Thursday of a Galloway woman who worked there.

Angela Capella, 26, was fired from the company, which was not named in a statement distributed by Egg Harbor Township police, but was described as “local”.

The release was classified as an “arrest for child abuse”.

During an unspecified period in December 2021, police said, Capella was observed “violently handling several children” while working at the company.

She was charged with four counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Police have not provided details of any potential injuries the children involved may have suffered.

After her arrest, Capella was released on a summons. A hearing date was not immediately made public.
