Baltimore County Police said Thursday they are investigating a video circulated on social media Thursday that appears to show a woman striking two young children.
“The department is aware of the video, and is investigating the woman and the children,” said police spokeswoman Natalie Litofsky.
The children have been transferred to the Department of Social Services, the department said. The investigation focuses on a household in the Essex/Middle River area, police said.
“Right now, there are no charges pending,” she said Thursday. Litofsky did not have additional information.
