Children found tied to car seats by their necks after police raid day care centre

A day care centre owner has been arrested after reportedly tying small children to car seats by their necks for hours in a dark cupboard.

A US arrest warrant affidavit alleges Rebecca Anderson kept youngsters 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.  

Anderson, 60, also allegedly 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.

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.

Anderson added she did this to stop the kids from moving.
