An Ohio daycare employee has been arrested after police say she raped an infant — and even captured it on video.
Heather Koon, 25, was taken into custody Friday after authorities discovered a sex tape she had recorded of herself raping a little child, according to local Fox affiliate, WXIX.
The video was reportedly found on Koon’s laptop, after police checked up on her fiancé James Osborne, who is listed on Lorain County’s sex offender website at an incorrect address. After police arrested him, they confiscated a laptop belonging to Koon and uncovered the disturbing footage.
The police report describes the video as showing her “engaging in sexual conduct with an unknown infant.”
The father, who WXIX kept anonymous, said police worked with him to identify the child.
“They showed us still photos,” he said.
“I still haven’t wrapped my mind around it,” he continued. “It’s every parent’s worst nightmare.”
According to the father, the daycare center, ABC KIDZ, told him not to discuss the incident publicly.
“They tried to act like it was a simple assault,” he told WXIX. “A few hours later they called us back again and asked us to keep it discrete.”
A spokesperson for ABC KIDZ was not immediately made available to TheBlaze for comment Sunday morning. On what appears to be the daycare center’s website, they stress a staff of “qualified teachers” and “age appropriate curriculum” in a “nurturing & creating environment.”
Police have since identified a second victim and Koon now faces two counts of rape, according to WXIX.
However, despite the already two counts of rape, Lorain County sheriff Chief Deputy Dennis Cavanaugh told a local newspaper that “this is just the beginning.”
Koon is reportedly being held in the Lorain County Jail.
