  • A 33-year-old Harrington woman is charged with assault and child endangerment after allegedly using a fly swatter to discipline a child.
    Erica L. Vogel was arrested Friday after the Delaware Division of Family Services contacted police in reference to an instance of child abuse that occurred in the 100 block of Mechanic Street on Jan. 25, Harrington Police Department spokesman Earl Brode said.
    Police determined Vockel had used a fly swatter and her hand to spank a 10-year-old child on the buttocks, leaving multiple bruises.
    After turning herself in to police, Vockel was arraigned and released on a $2,000 unsecured bond, Brode said.
