Police are investigating again a video circulating on Facebook where a child is being physically abused by a guardian.
The video was posted by Caribbean Youth Entertainment around 1 pm yesterday. Contacted yesterday public information officer of the Police Service, Insp Wayne Mystar, said the police were aware of the video and the Cyber Crime Unit were attempting to trace its origin in order to bring the culprit to justice.
In the video a woman, who appears to be pregnant, is seen beating a boy who looks to be in his teenage years with a shovel. As the boy resists, the woman stands on his arms and chest in order to deliver the blows. During the recording the person taping is heard saying he will post the video on Facebook.
Throughout the beating the woman is cursing and threatening the child on one occasion promising to “buss the boy head” with the metal handle shovel. The licks came apparently as a result of the boy beating a child much younger and smaller than him. Sometimes the woman was seen kicking the child while shouting “Yuh like how that feel” as the child screamed.
