(PORT ARTHUR, TX) — It took a video on Facebook to help locate the southeast Texas woman seen hitting her 8-month-old baby.
The woman in the disturbing video of the repeated slapping a baby has now been identified. Tieralyn Angelle, 27, was arrested at her home in Port Arthur.
But the man who shot the incident and doesn’t want to be identified told our news partner, KHOU 11, that he had to take the video to Facebook because local police didn’t seem interested.
The mother was arrested for violating her probation on a burglary charge. The neighbor with the camera hopes the video changes Angelle’s behavior.
The eight-month-old baby is with Child Protective Services.
