Police: 2 girls put infant in fridge while baby-sitting

Posted: Updated:

SALEM, Mass. (AP) - Two teenage girls face charges after Massachusetts police say they put an infant they were baby-sitting inside a refrigerator and closed the door.
    
The girls were released to their parents after their arraignments Tuesday in juvenile court on charges of child endangerment and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Their names were not made public because of their ages.
    
Police became aware of the Monday night incident after a social media video surfaced of the child crying and the girls laughing. The girls were baby-sitting for a family in Danvers.
    
The baby's mother told WBZ-TV she was angry but does not think the girls intended to harm the infant. The mother says her child is fine.
