A two-year-old child from California is recovering after a woman in People’s Park in Berkeley allegedly gave him methamphetamine.

The boy was with his nanny at a play structure, when a 36-year-old female suspect, Sayyadina Thomas, walked up to the boy and placed something in his mouth, say police.

His nanny immediately checked, but found nothing in the boy’s mouth. The nanny then called UCPD to report the incident and when police and paramedics responded, the suspect was taken into custody for psychiatric evaluation.

 While being taken to a holding facility, police say that the suspect said that she told them she gave the child methamphetamines.

Witnesses said they saw the nanny pushing a baby in a stroller and watched the toddler run to the swing set. They said they saw Thomas ask the toddler if he wanted some candy and then saw the woman put something into his mouth.

After being taken to the hospital for treatment, it was determined the child did have meth in his system.

Thomas was then arrested for attempted homicide and the child is now recovering at the hospital.
