A caregiver at a Pompano Beach elementary school is facing a child abuse charge after she told students to "dog pile" on top of a fellow student, authorities said.

Givincia Exantus, 21, was arrested Wednesday, more than a year after the alleged incident at Palmview Elementary School, according to an arrest report released by the Broward Sheriff's Office.

According to the report, Exantus was acting as the child's caregiver in an after-school program when she struck him with a "skip ball" cord four or five times then told several other students to jump on him in a "dog pile," which they did.

The victim told detectives Exantus became angry with him after he had passed gas, calling him "nasty" as she struck him with the cord, the report said.

Exantus was booked into jail and later released. It was unknown whether she has an attorney.
