Three Florida women were arrested on Friday after they allegedly slapped, kicked, and choked a 14-year-old girl. The adults then forced the girl to take off her clothes so they could beat her with a belt.

The incident took place in Orange City, Florida. When Volusia County Sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene, they found the teen covered in "multiple lacerations and welts," according to a VCSO press release.

The women told authorities they were just punishing the girl for getting suspended from school.

The bizarre corporal punishment plot might have gone unnoticed had a neighbor not called 911.

"The caller said three women were chasing and fighting a girl and they had all gone into a nearby house," according to the press release. "When deputies arrived, they found the upset victim crying in the home while wearing just a bra and panties. She had multiple bleeding cuts and several welts."

Ishiyah McGhee, 30, and Janine McGhee, 39 "holding belts and breathing heavily." Another woman, Moriyah McGhee, 32, wasn't home but was also eventually arrested.

The three women -- several of whom still look like teenagers themselves -- told authorities they were simply punishing the girl for being suspended from school.

Taken to Florida Hospital Fish Memorial Hospital, the teen told her side of the story.

"Deputies learned that the girl and the three women had been to the girl's school that morning for a meeting about the teen's suspension," according to the press release. "When the meeting was over, they all walked into the parking lot and the teen said that's when the beating started. The women slapped the victim, shoved her against cars and choked her by grabbing her necklace. They all then got into vehicles and left the school."

But just before they arrived home, the girl bolted from the moving car. The women chased her down, however, and "grabbed her by the hood of her sweatshirt, choking her."

Inside, McGhee allegedly demanded that the victim fight her, but the girl refused.

"The victim told deputies that the women then forced her to take her clothes off so that she would feel the discipline," according to the press release. "They then continuously kicked, punched and beat the victim with belts over her entire body until deputies arrived."

Authorities have not said how the three women are related to the minor. All three adults face charges of child abuse.

Hi I'm Moriyah the savage beater. We are smiling because we did nothing wrong. It is disheartening the way we were portrayed by the media. For those of you who didn't judge much love goes out to you. She wasn't suspended she was expelled. For false statements( yes false statements, being in a gang , malicious intent. As far as us we are released on a zero bond. And when it all comes out (the truth that is) the public will see unlike news stories I was there the whole time

( I have the video;-))thank goodness !! For a better story I wasn't there when my sisters were arrested. But I was recording the video and it was my two story home and address broadcasted over news where me and my three kids live. Don't worry 14 year old is fine. Maybe someone will release hospital records would explain why news story was short lived.

David that's an extremely ignorant thing to say. She is a victim. 14yo's misbehave- it still doesn't give anyone, including their parents, the right to beat and abuse them.

It makes her sound like a victim...she must've been doing something very naughty for her to get her mom and aunt involved...what got her suspended?

honestly, this sort of abusive "discipline" is not at all shocking to me, having gone to public school in low income areas of Miami. Hell, try riding the public bus or train and see how women beat the hell out of their kids and degrade them. It's horrible and depressing, but unfortunately, pretty common place.

Should've never been suspended? Really? No, these women should've never reproduced. There's discipline and torture. This girl was tortured and humiliated...sorry. Don't agree with this one bit.
