— A woman who works at a Head Start center in Fayetteville has been charged with abusing a 4-year-old there, police said Monday.

Nancy Myers Shuey, 60, of 4829 Backbay Road, was charged Friday with misdemeanor assault on a child under age 12. She was released on a $1,000 unsecured bond.

Police said the 4-year-old told his mother on Nov. 17 that he had been forced to sleep in a closet, and when she complained to a Head Start supervisor, a review of video from the center showed Shuey dragging the boy by his arm across a room, police said. The Youth Services Unit of the Fayetteville Police Department then investigated the incident.
