An 18-year-old mother in Florida has been arrested after police claim she allegedly sent photos of herself stomping on the head of her 10-month-old baby in an attempt to get the attention of the child’s father.

Officers recently responded to a residence in Hollywood after receiving a report of possible child abuse, according to an affidavit obtained by WPLG.

The caller was an unidentified female who told authorities that her friend, later identified as Alicia Brea, had just sent her photos in which she was “stomping” on her 10-month-old child, the affidavit states.

At the scene, the teen mother told police that she was upset with the baby’s father and sent him a photo of her stepping on the baby’s head “to see if the baby’s father would come back to her,” police wrote in the affidavit, noting the couple broke up earlier in the day and Brea was “very upset.”

Brea allegedly told police she also sent the baby’s father several other photos showing the child was unharmed, claiming she “would never hurt the baby.”

Officers did not observe any “visible injuries to the baby," according to the affidavit.

With permission, police went through her messages on Brea's phone, where they saw photos of her stepping on the baby’s face, the affidavit claims.

Brea was arrested and charged with one count of child cruelty - abusing a child without causing great bodily harm, authorities said.

She was booked into the Broward County Jail and released on $20,000 bond. She is to be fitted with a GPS monitoring device and is prohibited from having any contact with her child. She must also undergo a mental health examination.
