A 71-year-old Ghanaian nanny in the US who has taken up the job to take care of a baby is now in police grips after CCTV footages revealed that she has been maltreating the child in the absence of his parents.
The woman who has been identified as Abena Yeboah could be seen in one of the footages spanking and hitting the child for no reason.
After the discovery, she was reported to authorities and an arrest was made by NYPD officers.
The Prosecutor’s Office said she was charged with one count of Title 9 child abuse. Officials disclosed that the police in Hackensack was first notified of the alleged abuse on July 8.
Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella who announced her arrest, said;
“During her time as a nanny for the family, she was observed on a nanny camera physically abusing the child by hitting, kicking, and yanking the child by the arm.”
