A Texas woman was arrested after a neighbor captured video of her allegedly slapping her 8-month-old daughter repeatedly.
According to News12, Tieralyn Angelle was caught on video allegedly smacking the infant after a neighbor said he heard the baby crying even with his doors and windows closed.
“It was kind of loud for me to hear with my door closed,” he explained. “That’s what made my heart just fall. It was too hard.”
He decided to record the alleged incident and then contacted the authorities about it. Police did not ask him for the cell phone video which he posted online.
The video was shot on Tuesday.
KHOU reported that the 27-year-old mother was arrested and questioned about the alleged child abuse. She was booked on unrelated charges of violating her probation and burglary.
The baby did not appear to be injured when investigators caught up with Angelle on Thursday, however, the infant will remain in the custody of Child Protective Services.
