Two Ohio educators were arrested after they did not stop the bullying of a 5-year-old girl who was in their care. The suspects have been charged with child endangering.
The arrest came after Columbus detectives discovered the troubling surveillance video, recorded on Aug. 13 at the Worthington Learning Center, which shows 27-year-old Joshua Tennant and 31-year-old Emma Dietrich, sitting at a table in the classroom when the 5-year-old female victim is brought in by an older student.
The older students can be seen in the video grabbing, pulling, dragging, and swinging the victim.
Dietrich and Tennant continued sitting in chairs without attempting to intervene.
At one point in the video, Tennant picks the girl up by her ankle and carries her upside-down away from the other students to a nearby rug.
Columbus police said they made the information public because they want to show the severity of what the little girl endured.
Dietrich pleaded not guilty to endangering children at her arraignment on Sept. 11. Her next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 16. Tennant is scheduled to be arraigned on the morning of Sept. 16, according to 13abc.
The investigation is ongoing.
