A Colorado mother has been arrested after allegedly being caught on video forcing her 5-year-old child into the trunk of her car.
Chelsea Trujillo, 33, was taken into custody Thursday on a child abuse and restraining order violation following the incident that unfolded a day earlier, according to the Pueblo Police Department.
Video of the scene reportedly captured by a witness begins with the sounds of a child crying.
“Get in there before I f—k you up!” a woman is heard screaming before slamming the trunk of her vehicle.
A voice off camera then starts shouting at the woman, telling her “dude, you can’t put your f—–g kid in the f—–g trunk!”
“Take the f—–g kid out of the f—–g trunk!” the voice demands.
“Dude I was going to take him out, check this out” the woman then says as the trunk is popped back open and a child emerges.
The Pueblo Police Department described Trujillo as homeless and said in a statement that they “received information that… Trujillo was forcefully placing her 5-year-old male child in the trunk of her vehicle.”
