Two teen girls in Maryland were arrested for torturing a teen boy who has autism and filming the whole thing on their cell phones.
Lauren Bush, 17, and an unidentified 15-year-old girl are accused of stabbing a 16-year-old mentally disabled boy, dragging him by his hair, and forcing him to perform various sex acts.
They also allegedly forced the victim to walk on a partially frozen pond, according to the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office.
“Another video depicts the male on an icy pond being told to continue to walk out further, actually falling in the water several times and pulling himself out,” St. Mary's County Sheriff Tim Cameron told WJLA.
According to police, girls refused to help their victim out of the frigid water.
Bush allegedly knew the victim well. Investigators say the girls admitted to making the videos, but they don’t understand why.
“Who could harbor the ill will to do something so completely heinous?” said Cameron. “I don't know. It's hard to fathom, really.”
Bush and the other girl were charged with first-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault, false imprisonment and soliciting the subject in the production of child pornography.
Bush, who is being held at St. Mary’s County Detention Center, was charged as an adult.
