A Melbourne couple has been arrested on child abuse charges after a video showing their toddlers having sex was shared online.
A Melbourne couple have been charged with child abuse after a young girl, pictured here with her sister, allegedly was forced to perform oral sex on her siblings.
The video, allegedly showing a toddler performing oral sex and a girl performing oral copulation on another, was shared on the popular website Reddit.
A 22-year-old woman and her 22-month-old child were arrested on Thursday afternoon and charged with two counts of common assault.
A Facebook group has been set up to track down the girl and her siblings and police are urging people to be vigilant.
“The girl’s siblings are very vulnerable and we need to protect them,” Assistant Commissioner Peter Fitzpatrick said.
“They’re not in the same situation as a young person, so it’s vital that we investigate and prosecute these cases as quickly as possible.”
The mother of the toddler has been released on bail.
