The case of the 14 years old teen who fled her New Jersey home in October before finding solace in New York, takes a new turn as the mother has been arrested.

According to the police officials, the teenage girl ran away from her home to escape from physical and mental abuse at the hands of her mother.

A criminal complaint was filed at the Essex county court against Jamie Moore, the 40 years old mother who was allegedly accused of abusing the girl multiple times including “stabbing the victim to her shoulder causing a laceration that is still visible, spraying bleach in her eyes, pulling her braids out and striking her with several objects, including a frying pan.”

According to the criminal complaint, Jamie Moore also struck the teenage girl with her hands and assaulted her physically by putting her knees on her back and neck which “caused her to struggle to breathe.”

The officials stated that Moore will be accused of “educational neglect” as well. She didn’t let the young girl attend the virtual learning classes for the school year 2020/2021 and later on did not enroll her for the 2021/2022 new session for school.

The 14-year-old reportedly fled from the home on 14th October 2021, when she misplaced a grocery card. According to the girl, the mother grabbed her neck and scratched her, and verbally scolded her while cursing her for misplacing the grocery card.

In a previous press conference held on 5th November, Jamie Moore was all tearful and stated an entirely different narrative in front of the social media regarding the grocery card stating So, I said, ‘Baby backtrack your steps because you lost it before and found it. So it’s probably right outside or when you went in your pocket, it probably fell out.’ So she did. She left, she backtracked her steps. That was the last time I saw her.”

“I cannot imagine what she might be going through just being away from us this long, being away from her family who loves her very much,” Moore said at the time. “If anybody knows anything, please, please come forward.”The 14 years old girl was later found in a women’s shelter in New York after a weeks-long lengthy search by the officials. Her little brother who is only 3 years old has also been taken away from Jamie Moore over the horrendous charges of physically assaulting her daughter.
