Albuquerque police are filing charges against a man they identified as a former staff member of Camelot of New Mexico for felony child abuse after a cell phone video documenting the abuse was received by local NBC Affiliate KOB TV 4. The video shows what appears to be a staff member of the autism center kneeing an autistic child in the head while the child was sitting and crying on the floor.

Further investigation revealed that the staff member no longer worked at the center, but by an unusual set of circumstances, the mother of the child identified the child on the video as her son. This occurred when the mother contacted KOB about an October 28th report about the center being under investigation by state officials for alleged attacks and reports of sexual behavior because of insufficient supervision.

When KOB showed the mother the video, she not only identified her son, but told KOB that she had pictures of her son’s injuries that she would bring to the station. As a result of three missed interviews with the mother, the pictures were never delivered. When pressed for an explanation, the mother sent a strange email stating she was happy with her son’s care. Later the mom explained that someone hired by Camelot wrote the emails and made her send them through her email account.
