An investigation into child abuse began after an incident with 16-year-old Coleen Goslin, who later accused her father John Goslin of punching and kicking her.
PEOPLE confirmed that Burke, Pennsylvania Child and Youth Services of the county has informed Colin’s mother, Kate Goslin, for an open investigation into an alleged violent incident between John and the teenager earlier this month.
According to the CYS report, which PEOPLE has observed, the charge is due to “bodily injury to a child through recent acting / failure: hitting / punching.” The report does not name John as the alleged perpetrator of the abuse, but the allegation is consistent with an allegation on Colin’s Instagram last week that his father “beaten” him. The Lower Heidelberg Township Police Department did not comment when it reached PEOPLE.
“You don’t kick and kill your children. You don’t kick a child. I don’t want to hear anyone’s excuses, not from his father, not from local law enforcement, not from court personnel whose job is to make sure. My children’s best interests, “Kate tells PEOPLE. “There is a child abuse law, PA 23, Section 8i states that doing any of the following, whether it causes injury, is child abuse, and is the first kicking on that list.”
She tells John, “I don’t want children around me. Enough.”
Last week, Colin accused her father of physically abusing her on Instagram.
“My dad is a liar,” he wrote in a post removed from the post, a screenshot reviewed by PEOPLE. “Yesterday he beat me and thought nothing of it, he punched me in the face and sniffed me in the nose and made me bleed. He continued to hit me in the ribs while he was on the floor. He’s a liar.”
A source told people that the incident happened after Coleen became upset while talking to her father in the car.
“Coleen was furious and screaming and swearing. When they got home, he was still screaming and cursing and he walked into the garage and got … a big heavy bottle of liquid – And threw it in John’s car, dent it, “claims the source. “John angrily comes out of the car, puts him in a crouch, punches him square in the nose, and when Colin falls to the ground, he kills him in the ribs.”
According to the source, Colin called the police, who reacted to the incident.
A representative for John did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.
Although the CYS is currently happening, it is unlikely that John will face any legal consequences. Berks County District Attorney John Adams told PEOPLE, “No charges or citations have been filed as a result of that incident. There is only one incident we know of at this point and no citations or charges were filed as a result of the incident.” had gone. . “
Kate says that this development “makes me sick to my stomach.”
“I don’t want to bury this, swept under the rug or at least. As a mother, I am not attacked by any of my children, my children, while I leave my father alone I’m not going to sit quietly and silly. ” She says. “I’m highlighting this, and I’ll keep ranting about it, in the hope that the authorities and the courts will finally do the right thing. Don’t return my child to an addict’s house. The need to accuse John of a crime Is. If it was your child, would you feel okay with it flowing under the rug? “
John and Kate, who divorced in 2009 after 10 years of marriage, are the parents of twin daughters Cara and Madeline, 19, and Alexis, Aiden, Joel, Leah, Hannah and Coleen, 16. With his TLC series, John and kate plus 8
Coleen spent a little over two years from her family in a program for children with special needs before moving in with John. Hannah also lives with her father, while the other four sakes and twins live with their mother.
Now, Kate says, “The police advised me that they removed Colin from John’s house immediately, and as far as I know, he still hasn’t returned.”
Speaking to reporters last year, John said that he is not in communication with his children other than Coleen and Hannah.
“This is what the kids want to do,” he said. “If they don’t want to talk to me, that’s fine, as long as they maintain a relationship with their siblings.”
John has also publicly accused Kate of misconduct in press interviews. But after the latest alleged incident, Kate says she feels compelled to speak out.
“I kept quiet for a long time as John has repeatedly tried to start a world war with vicious words, allegations of abuse that were always unfounded, but I never engaged – I never defended myself or myself Didn’t struggle to do, because there were eight people that meant more to me, “she says of her children. “But now that it involves one of my children, I will no longer be silent. Say whatever you want about me, and I’ll be on the high street. But you harm my children, I’m back. Ready to fight. “
On Sunday, Colin posted an Instagram showing his new haircut. “Got a new cut and I’m doing better than ever,” he wrote. “Too good not to enjoy life! #Livelikeitsyourlastday.” For Kate, he is harassing the Post, in the wake of Colin’s allegations of physical abuse.
She says, “I have always taken care of my children’s interest. Parents to show themselves well. It is so sick that it makes me blood.” “I am terrified that this man is the father of my children. I do not want my children to associate with someone who loses his mind because his car got dented.”
