OKLAHOMA CITY — A grandmother faces charges after being accused of dressing as a witch and abusing a 7-year-old girl.

KFOR reports Geneva Robinson, 49, was arrested after trying to take the little girl to a hospital, saying she couldn’t control her anymore. The child had burns and bruises and looked malnourished. There were also cuts on her ankles and it appeared her wrists may have been bound.

The girl said her grandmother would dress up as a witch and wear a green mask when she would abuse her. The girl claims she’d been taken to the garage to sleep for the night with her wrists bound. She also claimed her grandmother used a dog leash to hang her from her arm pits in the garage.

When she was dressed as a witch, the grandmother would go by the name “Nelda.”

Several neighbors told KFOR they didn’t believe the allegations. But police said they did find evidence in the home that appeared to support the girl’s claims, including whips, chains, a dagger and a witch’s hat.

There were a total of four children living in the home at the time; they are now in protective custody.
