Police in Ohio arrested a woman after she allegedly live-streamed footage of her raping a  4-year-old boy on Periscope,  officials said.

India Kirksey, 20, has been charged with felony rape and was arraigned in court on Monday. She remains in custody at the Hamilton County Jail on a $350,000 bond and is ordered to have no communication with the young boy.

Authorities in Harrisburg County, Ohio received a tip from someone in Texas who found the footage on the internet.

Hamilton County Police officials said the video was reportedly shared via Periscope, the app that allows users to live stream videos direct from a phone or tablet.

According to court records, the incident occurred “on or around” January 4th.

In an interview with investigators, the woman admitted to performing oral sex on the toddler, Cincinnati.com reported.

Details of the investigation remained sealed because of the age of the victim and the sensitive nature of the accusations.

A family member who refused to be identified told WCPO in Ohio that Kirksey has special needs.
