A former employee who helps children with behavioral problems is in jail accused of child abuse.

The Tulsa County District Attorney filed two charges against Dale Allen, 52, for beating two kids at Shadow Mountain
Hospital and Assessment Center.

Tulsa police Child Crisis detectives say Allen worked at Shadow Mountain from November 2011 to January 2013.

Police say he a 9-year-old boy’s shirt and slammed him to the ground in December 2012.

Police said his mother questioned Shadow Mountain employees about the bruises and was told it was done by another boy.

Investigators said it wasn't until a child advocate reviewed the surveillance video and saw Allen attacking the boy and kicking another 9-year-old boy.

Police say DHS was contacted and that is when TPD Child Crisis started investigating the suspected child abuse.
