Edcouch police are investigating the alleged sexual assault of a 4-year-old child.
Investigators said the child TMs mother filed a report with the police department after the victim made an outcry.
Police told Action 4 News that the child was entrusted to the care of two teenage relatives.
They said, in that time, the 12-year-old and 14-year-old girls tortured the victim for hours.
The alleged victim was not only sexually assaulted she was also threatened, said Edcouch Police Chief Eloy Cardenas. They told her if she said anything more harm would come to her. This is something that we TMre looking at really closely.
Chief Cardenas said he cannot release much information about the case because it is still under investigation.
He did tell Action 4 News that the two girls have been detained and taken before a magistrate.
Both teens were charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child and have no right to a bond because they are juveniles.
Cardenas said the crime took place at suspects home. He said the department is looking into whether or not this crime has occurred in the past.
