Emphasizing the fact that some people aren’t meant to produce offspring, a couple was arrested after committing a sexual assault.

The victim, sadly, was their1-month-old baby son.

Staci Lynn Barbosa, 19,  and 23-year-old Jonathan Edward Vandergriff, residents of Bullhead City, Arizona, are believed to have raped the young infant, or had some involvement in the act, according to Bullhead City police spokeswoman Emily Montague.

Authorities were called to Western Arizona Regional Medical Center’s Emergency Room, being informed that a child was fighting for his life.  Police stated that they saw bruises and sores all over the baby’s body while his eyes were red and swollen shut.

Upon further investigation, doctors found that the child suffered from broken ribs, a broken femur, was malnourished, dehydrated, and showed signs of sexual abuse and shaken baby syndrome, according to Phoenix New Times.

Barbosa and Vandergriff, who brought their child to the hospital, were immediately taken into custody after the baby was airlifted to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where a trauma center was available.

Vandergriff and Barbosa were arrested for molestation of a child, child abuse, aggravated assault, and sexual conduct with a minor.

Vandergriff is being held on a $500,000 bond and Barbosa’s bail was set at $250,000.

It would really be pointless to even give commentary on such a sick act…
