A daycare worker in Pasco County has been arrested for throwing water at a three-year-old boy’s face.

Tiffany Littlepage, 34, of Holiday is accused of dumping water on the child's head and then forcefully throwing water in the child's face because he was playing with her water bottle.

The boy is non-verbal and on the autism spectrum. 

A teacher at the Children's Nest Day School on State Road 54 told investigators Littlepage is known to target children who are "slow learners and have disabilities."

Littlepage is charged with child abuse.

She was booked at the Pasco County jail on a $5,000 bond.
