“In that video, two young ladies could be seen on the video placing a small child, an infant, into a refrigerator,” Ambrose said.
Police said the teens posted the video to social media and are heard laughing.
The pair was arrested by Danvers police.
“They were charged with child endangerment and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon,” Ambrose said.
The teenagers appeared in juvenile court in Salem and were released into the custody of their parents.
“We can report that the child is home with a parent and is doing well,” Ambrose said.
Police are continuing their investigation along with the Essex County District Attorney’s Office and the Department of Children and Families.
