The 39-year-old babysitter who allegedly tied up a three-year-old boy and left him lying on the floor at her house will be charged in court on Friday.
North Seberang Perai OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Rahman Ibrahim said investigations have been wrapped up and papers submitted to the Deputy Public Prosecutor for further action.
On Tuesday, the mother, who lives in the same Taman Seri Pinang flats, dropped her son off at the babysitterâ€™s home at about 5.30am before leaving for work.
The factory worker, who had been sending her son to the babysitter since June last year, noticed that the child was always looking tired and hungry when she picked him up from the babysitter.
At 10am, she returned to check only to find her son bound. However, the child was not injured.
The babysitter claimed that the child was extremely naughty and hence, had to be tied up.
The case was investigated under Section 31 of the Child Act.-The Star
