FISHERS – Fishers Police detectives have arrested a woman for allegedly abusing a child in her care.
Shannon E. Gillen, 27, Indianapolis, is charged with three felonies as a result of the investigation. She is in custody in the Hamilton County Jail.
On Jan. 21 Fishers police launched an investigation after the child’s parents noticed bruises on their child. They told police they suspected their in-home child care provider was abusing the child.
The parents provided police with video footage, from their home surveillance system, showing the suspect engaged in abusive behavior.
Detectives presented the case to the Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and an arrest warrant was issued.
Friday, detectives located the suspect, took her into custody, and transported her to the Hamilton County Jail without incident.
