Daycare center director arrested

The director of a Wilmington daycare center faces charges of endangering the welfare of the child.

Wilmington police say Marcella Wilhelm of Hockessin was arrested last week after an investigation into an incident involving a one-year-old child at Xavier Daycare on North Union St.

Police say the child suffered a concussion and broken arm while at the daycare center.

Authorities determined that the incident was an accident, but said Wilhelm failed to report it to the proper authorities and emergency medical personnel.
