BERKELEY (AP) – A woman was arrested on suspicion of attempted homicide for giving a 2-year-old boy methamphetamine at a Berkeley park.
KPIX reports the child is recovering at a hospital.
Authorities say the boy was with his nanny Monday afternoon at a play structure at People’s Park when 36-year-old Sayyadina Thomas walked up to the child and placed something in his mouth.
The nanny immediately checked, but found nothing in the boy’s mouth. The nanny called university police to report the incident and officers took Thomas into custody for a psychiatric evaluation.
Police say Thomas admitted to giving the boy the drugs, which she told him was candy.
