Day care owner accused of keeping babies tied to car seats


by Kaylin Jorge, Associated Press

MESQUITE, Texas — Parents are furious to learn a daycare owner faces charges after police say she restrained children by tying them up.

The woman owns a daycare center based out of her home in Mesquite, Texas.

One parent equipped their child with a hidden camera and the footage caught the woman possibly abusing a baby in a car.

Neighbors say they sometimes heard children screaming at her house.

"It just kind of concerned me the way the kids sounded when the parents dropped them off,” Susan Geldmeier said. “It alarmed me to where I was like why are they sounding like that".

The daycare owner, Rebecca Anderson, faces child endangerment charges and the case is still under investigation.

According to the Associated Press, an affidavit said, “the 60-year-old woman yanked a 6-month-old child by the bib around his neck, tying laces around the young children's necks to limit their movement and giving them acetaminophen to quiet them.”

Anderson is being held on a $45,000 bond.
