The warrant for Moipard’s arrest stemmed from an investigation into a complaint that Waterbury police received on November 04, 2016 about a 5-year-old boy who was allegedly assaulted while at Kids Town Day Care Facility, located on Wolcott Street. An investigation was conducted, and it was determined that Moipard, who was working at the facility at the time, assaulted the boy. Police say the boy had been taken to the hospital for his injuries.

“At the time of the injury, the child was checked out by medical personnel and there was some bruising and indications of an assault that did occur, however no significant injuries,” said Deputy Chief Fernando Spagnolo.

Moipard was booked and processed at Waterbury Police Headquarters on Thursday. She was arraigned on Friday and released on $25,000 bond. She is due back in court on January 23.
