VIDEO – Infant Beaten on Live Stream, Arrest Made


(CALGARY, AB) – A Calgary mother has been arrested and charged following an investigation by the Calgary Police Service Child Abuse Unit into an online video.

On Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2019, police received multiple tips from the public related to a live-streaming video that had been captured through an online gaming website. The video showed a woman playing a game, while roughly handling her young children. The woman is alleged to have slapped, pushed and bitten her 14-month-old son during the course of the video.


The online persona was tracked to a Calgary residence where officers located a woman, a man, and two children. The woman was arrested and the children were taken to a safe location.

The 31-year-old woman has been charged with one count of assault. She will next appear in court on Friday, Jan. 17, 2020. The woman’s name will not be released to protect the identity of the child but the video is attached at the end of this article.

“We want to thank the public and the media for bringing this video to our attention. When you find a video such as this online, it is very important that you report it to police, and not just share it throughout social media platforms. In this case we were able to act swiftly to locate the children to ensure their wellbeing, thanks to those who quickly reported the video,” says Child Abuse Unit Staff Sgt. Peter Siegenthaler.


Anyone who has information about incidents involving child abuse is asked to report it to the Calgary Police Service non-emergency phone number 403-266-1234.

  1. This is a case of a child getting in the way of a video game addiction.
    What grown man plays fortnight? lll tell ya who.
    A grown man that most likely depends on the donations of stream viewers.
    The kid is interfering with the stream – his income, so he takes a smack.

    Shoulda saw what I would get when I interfered with my parent’s parties as a kid.
    Not at 14 months old of course.
    Oh, and no, I never had to bring up Gladue factors in a court of law.

    1. com on this is Canada she will never see the big house, she a female they get away with everything from falsely accusing men, and with out even seeing a doctor the guy is toast, these are cases of the guy is guily until prove inisent, no defence unless you have a video of that time.. , to murder of a man, they get a small fine and probation, and in cases like this her kids are stuck in foster care the rest of there child’s life

  2. These animals should neverever be allowed around any small child. Clearly they are child abusers and their lousy video game is more important to them than a little child. I wonder what they do to the poor child when no one is actually watching them. I hope child services take that child away from them and they go to jail. They can have plenty of time to play their video games there.

  3. That’s one reason why the crack whores should be sterilized. The children they produce will be damaged and end up the next generation to be supported for life by the “social” safety net.

  4. Sad. I would never hit or teach my BOYS this behavior. They are my sons growing into great men. A VIDEO GAME, come on. Adults? OMG! They need a whoop ass from ELDERS. I’ll be right there. you want some whoop ass, from someone “Your own age”. I dont even play video games. I have children to raise. MUTT!

  5. These children need to be removed permanently. The mentality of these two abusers is obviously extremely self centred and juvenile.
    I hate to consider what these abused children have gone theough. Where are their relatives ? This cannot go on withoit others knowing.
    The degree of negligence is sickening. The level of anger will eventually lead to serious physical abuse and possibly death

  6. it says: was tracked to a Calgary residence where officers located a woman, a man, and two children. The woman was arrested and the children were taken to a safe location.
    why was the guy not arrested too seems like the both were doing the same thing…

    1. Being raised by very abusive parents, I can relate to what these children are going through. What needs to be understood is that despite the physical abuse they receive at home, small children will tend to want to stay with the abusers because of the fear of the unknown and being taken away and placed with strangers. In the minds of children, the relative comfort of familiarity outweighs the physical pain of abuse.

      Accordingly, either way, these kids will be subject to extreme emotional stress by taking them away. The best solution would be to correct the behaviour of the parents by having some form of electronic monitoring system installed in the home to track any untoward violence the kids may be subject to. I.e. microphones, cameras that will capture parental behaviour. Make it part of the court order and any tampering with devices will result in either the kids removed or punishment for the parents.
