Two Memphis men accused of raping nine-month-old girl and filming the attack

A 19-year-old man in the US is facing charges for allegedly raping a nine-month-old girl.

Isiah Hayes was 17 at the time of the alleged attack in Memphis, Tennessee.

And a friend, Dairius Ice, 22, is alleged to have filmed the attack.

The men have been indicted by a grand jury on charges which include aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.

Hayes has also been indicted on a charge of aggravated rape of a child.

The child’s mother reported the men to police in October 2016 after finding the horrific video showing her daughter naked from the waist down and being molested on a mobile phone, according to the Shelby County District Attorney’s Office.

The two men were arrested in February this year.

Hayes’ older brother, who asked not to be named, told local TV station WREG the family found the arrests “heartbreaking and scary”.

“Us as a family, we apologise. I know that the child may not remember but it’s something a mother is going to have to hold on to forever. Like, knowing that your child was exposed to something like that. You trusted your child with someone, and you have to deal with seeing this on your own”.

He wants his brother to get help, and says the video surfacing was down to a family feud.

A spokesman for the Commission on Missing and Exploited Children, Len Edwards, told the TV station that crimes such as this were often motivated by money rather than sex.

“There are 1.5 million images of child pornography in this country – and last year only 10,000 children were actually identified,” he said.
