(Scroll down for video) A mother in Florida, spoke out about the horror and shock she felt when her friends were arrested for raping her daughter.

The mother said that she befriended Tyler Bush-Conn, 28, at his job, where he worked as a Volusia County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher.

She also met his wife, Talisha, 27, and their two children. The families became close and they babysat for each other.

The victim’s mother said that she drove Tyler to church and the couple spent time at her home. They also offered to babysat her 7-year-old daughter while she went to work.

The mother never imaged that the couple was raping her daughter behind her back.

Recently, the girl went to visit her grandmother in Alabama, where she was caught looking at pornography on her grandmother’s computer.

The horrified grandmother questioned the girl and she revealed that she was being raped by the couple.

The grandmother called police who reported the crime to police in South Daytona.

The girl told police that when her mother left for work, Tyler said “let’s do our thing.” He placed his private parts into her mouth and told her to “chew on it.”

The couple also took photos of the girl while she was naked and warned about harming her if she told anyone about the abuse.

Some of the rapes took place in the child’s own bed while the couple locked her brother in another room.

During questioning, Tyler told police he “had a sexual interest in children since he was young.”

Talisha said that she participated in the acts to make her husband happy.

Police believe that there are more victims, and are asking people who were in contact with the couple to speak to their children.

Talisha was charged with sexual battery on a person under 12, lewd and lascivious exhibition, principal to child abuse and neglect of a child.

Tyler is charged with sexual battery against a person under 12 and lewd and lascivious exhibition.

Authorities are still examining his electronic devices, looking for the photos that the child said he made of her. Police intend to bring more charges relating to the child pornography photos.

The couple got married in 2008. Their two children were taken by child services. After speaking with them, police do not believe that the couple sexually abused their own children.
