Authorities say three teen girls are in custody after reports of a possible child abuse involving a one-year-old.

Police say they were called out to Conway Regional Medical Center on Monday in regards to a reported child abuse.

Officer Brittani Little says she spoke with the mother of the one-year-old girl who showed her a video in which it appeared that three teen girls were laughing hysterically, taunting the baby with a taser, and causing the child to scream and sob uncontrollably.

According to police, the video also shows the teens joking and laughing and one of them striking the child on the head forcefully.

The mother told Conway police that the teens were in charge of babysitting the child and she had been unaware of the alleged abuse until she saw the video, at which point she immediately brought the child to the hospital for treatment.

All three teen girls have been located and arrested for first degree endangering the welfare of a minor and are being held in the Faulkner County Juvenile Detention Center.
