Pre-school Georgia teachers caught on camera abusing children

Two pre-school Georgia teachers were arrested after a live camera feed caught both teachers abusing pint-sized students.

The footage obtained by WSBTV shows one teacher stepping on the fingers of a child and then bumping another student with her knee from behind. Another teacher can be seen using her finger to push a student’s head back after getting in the child’s face.

Parents watching a live feed of the classroom witnessed the incident.

Zeina Alostwani, 40, and Soriana Briceno, 19 were both arrested on cruelty to children charges by Roswell police.

The incident occurred in a three-year-old classroom at the Parker-Chase preschool in Roswell, according to WSBTV. Two parents watched it as it happened.

“I saw it but I was like no I didn’t see that,” parent Gloria Barghi told WSBTV.

She and parent Brant Duncan rushed to the school and demanded the teachers get away from the kids, WSBTV reported. The victims’ parents and police were contacted.

The parent of one of the victims, who did not want to be identified, also spoke out.

“It was a matter of seconds, and knew what we had seen was deliberate and my stomach was just in my throat at that point,” she told WSBTV.

Several other victims have come forward since the arrests and a larger investigation is underway.

A spokesperson for the Roswell police told WSBTV officers will go back several weeks to review footage to see if there are other instances of possible abuse.

The pre-school said in a statement the teachers were fired over the “inappropriate disciplinary actions.”

“While we are extremely grateful that the children are well, we take this matter seriously, and our investigation is ongoing,” the school stated, according to WSBTV. “We expect our staff to adhere to the highest standards of care, and any failure to do so will not be tolerated.”

A judge Tuesday granted a $75,000 bond for Alostwani, but Briceno didn’t get a bond based on her asylum and immigration status, WSBTV reported.
