Surveillance video captures babies being abused at day care

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) – Newly released court records say surveillance video has captured a suburban Kansas City day care worker abusing babies more than 170 times, including by shaking and slapping them.

Twenty-four-year-old Rachel Beth Schrader is on house arrest after she was charged earlier this month in Johnson County District Court with four counts of child abuse.

The affidavit describes her kicking a child square in the chest in one instance, causing him to fall backward and smack his head.

In a police interview, Schrader acknowledged “losing her patience” on Mar. 26, but said that was the only time.

Her attorney didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press on Saturday seeking comment.
