COLLEGE STATION -- A Becky Gates Texas A&M Children's Center teacher is facing felony charges into allegations that she hurt a child and the whole thing was caught on camera.

Police say, 52-year-old June Jones, was seen grabbing a four-year-old by the neck and pulling his hair back in May.

An associate teacher reported the incident and when investigators looked through surveillance video they witnessed Jones grab the young boy on several different occasions, dating back as far as April 13th.

"This incident is the first of its type that we are aware of that has occurred there and so we're taking this very seriously and it's being thoroughly investigated because there is always the potential for others," said Lt. Allan Baron, with the Texas A&M Police Department.

Jones has worked at the Children's Center since 2002.

She has been suspended from the school since May once the incident was reported.
