By Jonathan Sutton, Staff WriterAn Oklahoma City woman was arrested Tuesday after a 7-year-old girl told police the woman dressed up as a witch and abused her in several ways, including whipping and burning her.
Geneva Robinson, 49, was arrested Tuesday after she took a 7-year-old girl in her custody to the hospital because she “could not control” the child anymore, according to a police report.
The girl appeared to be malnourished, she had bruises and cuts all over her body and showed signs of being tied up, police said.
The girl told a state Department of Human Services worker Robinson would dress up as a witch, wearing a green mask, hat and robe, and take her to the garage where she would bind the girl up and make her sleep.
The girl said Robinson, who called herself “Nelda” when she dressed up as a witch, would take a dog leash and hang the girl from the garage ceiling underneath her arm pits and and tell her “the creatures in the attic were going to come get her,” according to the report.
She also said Robinson would sometimes hit her with an orange and black whip and described being burned and threatened with a knife.
When police went to Robinson’s house, they found the dog leashes and whip in the garage and found the witch costume in Robinson’s bedroom.
Another one of the four children living with Robinson told police she cut his finger with scissors and threatened to cut it off because he cut the hair off a doll.
One of the children said Robinson treated the 7-year-old girl differently than the other children by making her eat different food or eat out in the garage.
