TWO men have been charged over allegedly raping a nine-month-old girl and filming it.
A grand jury formally accused Isiah Hayes, 19, and Daireus Ice, 22, of the incident in Memphis, Tennessee when Hayes was 17.
Police said the child’s mother reported the incident to them after she found videos on a phone. In one of those videos a Hayes was allegedly seen exposing and touching himself with the child, who was nude from the waist down and still in view.
Police said in another Hayes was allegedly performing sex acts on the child.
The men were arrested in February after the mother reportedly used social media to identify one of the men and took the information to police.
Hayes was charged with aggravated rape of a child and especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.
Ice was charged with aggravated rape of a child and criminal responsibility for conduct of another and especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.
Hayes’ older brother, who asked not to be named, told local TV station WREG the family found the arrests “heartbreaking and scary”.
“Us as a family, we apologise,” he said.
“I know that the child may not remember but it’s something a mother is going to have to hold on to forever.
“Like, knowing that your child was exposed to something like that. You trusted your child with someone, and you have to deal with seeing this on your own.”
The man wants his brother to get help, and said the video surfaced because of a family feud.
