LIVERMORE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 20-year-old babysitter has been arrested on suspicion of felony child abuse east of San Francisco.

KNTV reports that Sgt. Steve Goard says Livermore woman Moriah Gonzales allegedly abused a 13-month-old boy in her care. She is being held in the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin.

Gonzales advertised her services on the babysitting website Care.com. On its website, which calls itself as the “largest online destination for care,” the company says it is not responsible for the “conduct of any care provider or care seeker.” “Care.com provides information and tools to help care seekers and care providers connect and make informed decisions,” it said.

Police started their investigation in early February after receiving a report of the alleged abuse.

Further details were not released by police.

An investigation is ongoing, the station reported.
