An Ohio day care employee charged with little one endangerment for not stepping in when a 5-year-old lady was assaulted will be seen in a police-released photograph holding the little lady upside-down by her ankles.
The disturbing picture was shared by the Columbus Police Division following the Sept. 10 arrest of Worthington Studying Heart employees Joshua Tennant, 27, and Emma Dietrich, 31.
“While we are protecting the identity of the 5yo victim we want to share with you the severity of what [the] little girl endured in a learning center,” the division tweeted, together with the picture.
“Actions by educators who are now facing criminal charges.”
Tennant and Dietrich had been busted after the video emerged of the pair standing by as older college students bullied and assaulted the “frightened” lady on Aug. 13, police mentioned.
The 2 admitted they refused to cease the assault as a twisted type of self-discipline, in response to courtroom paperwork cited by WCMH.
“In the video, the older students are grabbing, pulling, dragging, swinging and just ‘bullying’ [the girl],” police mentioned in an incident report.
“She appears frightened and keeps her eyes closed or covered and attempts to curl up into a fetal position.”
The lady then tried to get away from the older college students, however she was held down. Because the bullying continued, police mentioned Dietrich and Tennant “continually” sat at a desk close by and took no steps to cease the onslaught.
Later within the footage, Tennant picked up the 5-year-old lady by her proper ankle and left leg and carried her the wrong way up, inserting her again on a rug close to her tormentors, police mentioned.
