SINGAPORE - A couple have lodged a police report over the alleged mistreatment of their two-year-old daughter.
The girl's father, Mr Tan Qing Yuan, 37, told The Straits Times that the incidents were captured on the closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera he had fitted in the home.
The first incident was captured two days after the maid from Myanmar was hired, said Mr Tan.
He claimed footage showed the maid, Ms Siang Nei Thluai, 24, slamming the fridge door and hurting the toddler, according to the Shin Min Daily News.
Mr Tan, a driver, also said she mistreated the girl two to three times an hour on a separate occasion.
He said Ms Siang was hired to look after the couple's two younger girls - the toddler and a nine-month-old infant, as he and his wife, a human resource executive, work during the day.
Their eldest child, 4, attends kindergarten in the daytime.
In the clips Mr Tan showed The Straits Times, Ms Siang was seen closing the fridge door with one hand while carrying an infant in another arm.
The fridge door moves a few times before a toddler emerges from behind it and follows her.
Another clip shows the toddler, who was lying down in a playpen, being forcefully pulled up by the shoulder.
But according to Mr Tan, the police have said there is insufficient evidence and asked him to look for more evidence.
A police spokesperson confirmed that a report was lodged last week and investigations are ongoing. He added that what the investigating officer told Mr Tan is confidential.
