A female babysitter has been arrested by the police authorities for allegedly taking her employer’s baby without consent.

It is crucial to exercise utmost caution and diligence when entrusting the care of your child to a babysitter, as recent events have highlighted the importance of being vigilant in ensuring the safety and well-being of your little one.

In a troubling incident that unfolded in the City of Naga, Cebu, a 19-year-old babysitter named Janen Castro Nacorda was arrested by the local police in the early hours of Friday, April 14, 2023 after allegedly taking her employer’s two-month-old baby without their consent.


Nacorda, who hails from Sitio Plus, Inayawan Pardo, Cebu City, had been employed as a babysitter for a couple residing in Brgy. South Poblacion, City of Naga for only two days when the incident occurred on Thursday, April 13, 2023.

In response, the authorities swiftly initiated a hot pursuit operation, which resulted in Nacorda’s arrest in Barangay Balirong, City of Naga at around 1 am on Friday. The suspect is currently detained at the custodial facility of the City of Naga Police Station, pending the filing of charges against her.
