After several viewers emailed our sister station KDVR, authorities opened an investigation of the alleged abuse of the toddler, who cries as he is being cursed and screamed at by his mother, who is in rage about her lost cell phone charger.

Police have not identified the mother, but court records indicate she has been charged with cruelty toward a child and is being held on $3,000 bond. She has a bond hearing Thursday afternoon in Weld County.

The woman who took the cellphone video - but is not related to the mother - said Lochbuie police have also charged her with child abuse because she did nothing during the 16-minute video.

The woman claims she cannot walk or move and feels bad that she did not do more. She is due in court July 18
