Mom Allegedly Tapes Son To Chair To Take Other Child Swimming

A relative found the boy duct taped to a chair, his mouth was taped shut.

An Ohio woman has been charged for duct taping her 11-year-old son to a chair so she could take another child swimming.

Susan Malysa, 32, of Boardman Township appeared in court Tuesday for felony child endangering. According to the Associated Press, police arrested Malysa on Monday at a YMCA after a relative went to her home and found Malsya’s son in the basement, duct taped to a chair. His mouth was also allegedly taped shut. Police said the child was cold and shaking.

The relative told police she suspected Malysa was abusing the boy, according to WKBN. The relative said she tried to take the boy to a counselor but Malysa wouldn’t let him talk to the counselor alone.

A previous report from April 2016 alleged that the child told a school counselor a woman hit him with a hammer to discipline him, according to the AP.

Relatives now have custody of the children.
