Port Isabel Police arrested a couple they say sexually abused a baby and gave the infant an air inhalant.

According to a Facebook release, officers say they were called to the 400 block of Adams Street last Wednesday afternoon Feb. 21 for a welfare check of a small child.

The baby was turned over the Child Protective Services and the pair was arrested.

Callsen is charged with possession and use of an inhalant and aggravated sexual assault. His total bond is $76,500.

Draper is charged with possession and use of an inhalant, injury to a child and abandon endangerment of a child criminal neglect. Her bond totals $59,000.

Police did not disclose the relationship between the baby and the suspects.
