Police released new security camera video in connection to a child abuse investigation at a school in Boynton Beach.

Investigators say the video shows preschool teacher Amelia Jones getting physical with her students at Lighthouse Academy.

One portion of the video shows Jones lunging across a table to shake a 3-year-old girl who falls to the ground. Jones later grabs another student and pushes her, according to investigators.

Jones is now out on bond after her arrest last month on multiple child abuse charges. She has since been fired.

Police launched the investigation after getting a tip about a student who came home with bruises and scratches.
