Two workers at a church daycare in Georgia have been charged in a child abuse case for allegedly slamming round a 3-year-old boy in a caught-on-video incident.
The Clarkston Police Department issued arrest warrants Friday for Bernetta Glover and Autumn Coney on fees of cruelty to youngsters within the first diploma stemming from a July 6 incident at Clarkston First Baptist Academy.
The ladies allegedly slammed the little boy to the ground, pulled him up by his hair, threw him right into a nook and slapped and punched him a number of occasions, in line with a police report obtained by Fox 5 Atlanta.
The boy’s mom, Krystin Collier, stated her son had new bruises and was visibly upset when his grandmother picked him up from the daycare on July 6 in interviews with native information stations.
“This day, he was very, very emotional, standoffish. He was missing a shoe; he was very disheveled,” Collier informed CBS46 News.
The involved mother instantly sensed one thing went incorrect on the church daycare and requested to see video footage from a digicam inside the power that day.
The daycare turned over the video on July 13 and what Collier noticed left her feeling sick.
“One of the teachers picks up my son from one side of her body and slams him to the other side of her body, I guess to make him sit down,” Collier informed WSB-TV Atlanta.
The video, shared by Collier to WSB-TV, reportedly reveals a trainer choosing up Collier’s son and aggressively throwing him to the bottom.
“The staff punched my child in the face, grab him by his ponytail, and led him around like it’s a leash. I watched her grab him by his top ponytail, slam him against the wall, punch him in the face,” Collier informed CBS46.
The mother instantly pulled her son out of the daycare program and known as police.
She stated she thought she might belief a church to maintain her son.
“I’m very disgusted, very disappointed, because this is a church daycare,” Collier informed WSB-TV. “I trusted these people with my child.”
Collier has employed a lawyer to hunt justice.
“From what I saw on this tape, there is no question that the church is liable for the injuries, the emotional abuse,” her lawyer Jackie Patterson stated.
