WILTON — A Wilton woman arrested Tuesday is charged with assaulting a child under the age of 6.

Cassandra Lamoureaux, 28, of Wilton, is accused of spanking a child who was under her care, allegedly leaving marks on the child’s body, Wilton police Officer Brian Lynch said Friday.

Given that the child Lamoureaux harmed was under the age of 6, the assault charge against her was elevated to a felony.

Lynch said police were made aware of the assault through a referral, and that the child was taken to the hospital to be evaluated medically.

Lamoureaux is being held at the Franklin County Jail in lieu of $500 cash bail.
