AZTEC, NM — Two teens have been arrested after they were caught on camera abusing an 8-year-old boy with Down Syndrome who was left in their care.

One of the videos, which was obtained by KRQE News 13, shows Lindsey Moss and Dallas Baron, both 19, forcing the boy, whose name is Bricen, to inhale marijuana from a bong while babysitting him.

The second video shows Moss and Baron throwing an empty five-gallon water jug on the head of the boy while filming on a cell phone.

"He's the most loving, caring little boy and it disgusts me that they could do this to him. Especially while one of them being pregnant herself," Bricen's mother said.

Police say the videos were made last year. But they were not received until June, after a concerned friend sent the videos to Bricen's father, Josh Greenhaus, through Snapchat.

Greenhaus called the Aztec Police Department, and said that he shared the videos in order to help put pressure on the District Attorneys' office in the hopes that they will prosecute.

Bricen's distraught mother says that her son can't speak and that she'd had no idea that the abuse took place.

She also said that three other videos exist, and show even more disturbing content.
