Desirae Marie Korus San Antonio, Texas woman arrested after observed dangling toddler child over 3rd floor balcony as punishment as child pleads, ‘don’t drop me!’
A Texas woman was arrested earlier this week after a federal agent on unrelated surveillance duty saw her dangling a toddler over the edge of a third floor balcony while scolding the child as it pleaded with her, ‘don’t drop me!’
According to an arrest affidavit, an agent with the Drug Enforcement Agency called San Antonio police on Monday to report that he’d seen the woman drag the child onto the balcony, shouting at him while he cried, KSAT reports.
‘Are you going to touch that again?’ the woman is alleged to have said while dangling the boy about 35 feet above the ground. Sobbing, the boy pleaded ‘don’t drop me’ and said he ‘won’t do it again,’ according to the affidavit.
The agent said he heard Korus threaten to drop the boy before bringing him back over the edge and letting him go inside. The child was 3 to 4 years old, the agent said.
Korus refused to answer the door when San Antonio police arrived about 15 minutes later, the affidavit says.
According to MySanAntonio.com, police identified Korus by her address and the DEA agent identified a photograph. She was arrested her on Tuesday, and according to jail records, she’s being held on $20,000 bond.
