A woman was arrested after she was caught on video abusing two of her granddaughters, police in Ohio said.

Karen Sharpe, 54, of Hocking County, was caring for her 11 and 13-year-old granddaughters.

Sharpe constantly abused the girls. At one point, after being hit in the head, the 13-year-old decided to record the abuse.

She hid a camera and secretly recorded her grandmother’s vicious abuse towards her and her sister.

The girl then handed the videos over to police, and her grandmother was arrested.

According to police, one of the videos showed Sharpe forcing a man’s underwear stained with feces into the 11-year-old’s mouth.

When the girl vomited, her grandmother told her to swallow it.

Sharpe allegedly told police that she forced the girl to eat the dirty underwear as punishment after the child stepped on her injured toe.

Both girls were removed from her care and handed over to child services.

Sharpe was charged with child abuse. She was taken to the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail where she is being held in lieu of $1 million bond.
