71-year-old Ghanaian nanny arrested in US after being caught on camera hitting and kicking a baby under her care.

71-year-old Ghanaian nanny who was employed to take care of a baby has been arrested after CCTV footages revealed that she has been abusing the child in the absence of his parents.

Abena Yeboah as she has been identified could be seen in one of the footages spanking and hitting the child for reasons best known to her.

Abena who lives in Bronx was hired to take care of the baby in Hackensack.

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.”

Musella revealed that Yeboah was arrested in the Bronx by New York police after Hackensack police issued a warrant for her. She was taken into custody and is awaiting an extradition hearing.

After the discovery, she was reported to authorities and an arrest was made by NYPD officers.

New Jersey’s Title 9 child abuse statute makes it a fourth-degree crime to inflict “unnecessarily severe corporal punishment” or “unnecessary suffering or pain, either mental or physical,” on a child. People convicted of a fourth-degree crime face up to 18 months in prison.
