(WARNING: DISTURBING VIDEO)
BEAUMONT – A neighbor in Beaumont captured shocking video of a woman repeatedly slapping a crying baby.
A neighbor pulled out his phone to record the abuse and called police. By the time officers arrived, the woman and child were gone.
The homeowner would only tell police that the woman “is an acquaintance” and that the child isn't his.
Authorities said the video made them very concerned for the baby, and they’re hoping someone will turn the woman in.
