A York City couple has been arrested, accused of filming themselves sexually assaulting a newborn over the course of several months, according to police.

Wyatt Andrew Jones, 25, and Marisel Toro, 20, are each charged with two counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child; disseminating photos or film of child sex acts; child pornography; and indecent assault of a person younger than 13 years of age.

Jones also faces two counts of causing or permitting photographing, filming or depicting on a computer child sex acts, while Toro faces two counts of photographing, filming or depicting on a computer child sex acts. All are felonies.

Jones and Toro, of the 400 block of South George Street, were arraigned Tuesday before District Judge Ronald J. Haskell Jr. and are in York County Prison without bail. Bail was denied because they're a risk to public safety and can't have contact with children, according to court records.

The couple allegedly assaulted the infant beginning when she "was approximately one month old" from January to April, according to charging documents.

Jones and Toro recorded the sexual assaults on a cellphone and shared them on the messaging app Kik — where Boone Police in North Carolina discovered the child pornography and notified York City Police on Monday, according to charging documents.

Police served a search warrant and arrested Jones and Toro at their home, where officers found the infant sleeping in a bassinet, charging documents say.  

Jones sexually assaulted the infant while Toro helped and came up with some of the ideas for the "sexual acts," according to charging documents. 

"She advised that she did it because she knew it would please Jones," charging documents state. 

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for both on May 10 before Judge Haskell.
