The owner of a day care centre has been arrested and accused of tying small children to car seats by their necks in a dark closet for hours.

An arrest warrant affidavit alleges that Rebecca Anderson kept the small children tied up in car seats for at least seven hours a day at her home day care centre, Becky’s Home Child Care, in Texas.

The affidavit also says the 60-year-old woman yanked a six-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 keep them quiet, reports Yahoo news.

The father of the boy also told police he saw Anderson feed his child something from a liquid syringe.

He witnessed this via a camera on his child’s car seat, which he installed after becoming suspicious about Anderson’s behaviour.

After executing a warrant, Anderson told police five kids were inside her home but four more were found, CBS 11 News reported.

Three were found in a dark bedroom closet strapped in car seats while another was found in the master bedroom. They had shoe-lace like threads tied around their necks.

She’s facing nine counts of child endangerment.

  • Hope they throw the book at her and close down her ‘child-care’ operation forthwith.


  • OMG this is crazy how could anyone do this


  • Wow that is so scary! Those poor kids- I can’t believe that anyone could do this sort of thing! Don’t work in childcare if you don’t like children!


  • OMG this is outrageous behaviour for anyone to do on young children. What’s worse is that she was being paid to look after other people’s children. No matter her age, I hope she gets jail time for each child.


  • OMG! That’s just such violent and evil behaviour. How do you receive accreditation to care for kids in these conditions? Just terrible.


  • That’s just awful!!

    How can people do that!


  • I doubt the children were fed, taken to the toilet or nappies changed. She should jail for each child, not one small amount for the total of 9.


  • Who in their right mind does that, pure evil..Those poor little children, makes me sick to my stomach to think of the terror they must have felt. I hope to goodness they get all the help they need and their poor parents to recover from this.


  • How scary !!
    Glad she’s caught and awaiting charges ! may they be heavy.


  • Horrendous and scary. These poor kids who will remember this and be traumatised


  • Only in America!


  • Omg she should be locked up and the key thrown away.
    Those poor kids will need counselling after this
