A mother and grandmother in Florida are facing charges after they alleged duct taped their children and grandchildren to a chair because of a stolen moon pie that they weren’t supposed to eat.
The Daytona Beach Police Department said that it received a report from the Department of Children and Families regarding Ymani Bain, 30, stating that her children’s hands were taped behind their back, adding that the mother wrapped one kid’s entire body with tape “because she was mad,” according to FOX 35.
Police officers said that they spoke with the grandmother, Francis Chew, who was also at the home and said that the three children were playing with the duct tape and taped themselves onto a chair in the kitchen, the charging affidavit says.
Police reportedly spoke with one of the children before they went to the home, who said that their mother duct taped her, her sisters, and brother to a chair as a punishment because one of them ate a Moon Pie without asking for permission.
