A California woman has been arrested after being identified in a video which showed her hitting a young child in the face with what seems to be an iPad-like tablet.
Yvonne Camargo, 39, of Victorville, California, was arrested on April 3 on suspicion of willful cruelty to a child, however it is unknown whether she has been charged.
The clip was filmed on April 1 at a shopping center’s parking lot by a man, who goes by the user name Edward Moneyhanz on Youtube, after he saw the woman “pulling this kid by his hair out of the khols store”‘, according to the video’s description. (Scroll down for the video.)
1. Yvonne Camargo of Victorville, California, was arrested earlier in April after a video surfaced of her appearing to hit a child. In the YouTube video, Camargo can be seen hitting the child in the face with an iPad-like tablet.
2. Camargo is oblivious to the fact that she is being filmed until the cameraman questions her intentions. He and another woman watching the incident tell Camargo that she could go to jail.
The woman is seen wiping the child’s face as he cries. She then places him into the back seat of a Chevrolet sedan, as he continues to cry.
Camargo then reaches behind the child, grabs the tablet and hits him in the face with it. The youngster screams and grabs his face with his hands.
The woman seems unaware that she is being filmed until Moneyhanz and another woman start asking her what she’s doing. Moneyhanz asks:
Hey, why are you hitting that kid like that? Why are you hitting that little baby?
3. At the beginning of the video, Camargo can be seen wiping tears from the young boy’s face as he screams and cries. It is unknown what her relationship to the child is.
Then a female voice says that Camargo could go to jail before she, too, starts questioning her actions. She says:
Hitting a f****** innocent kid that can’t protect themselves. How do you feel hitting a kid?
Camargo does not respond to either Moneyhanz or the woman who confront her, but gets into her car. Moneyhanz then gets a shot of the license plate so she can later be identified.
After watching the footage, a viewer contacted the police and a deputy identified Camargo from the car’s plate, The Press-Enterprise reports.
4. A nanny is filmed beating a toddler with an iPad.
The police examined the child for injuries, contacted San Bernardino County Child and Family Services and interviewed Camargo.
It is unknown what Camargo’s relationship to the child is.
