A former police dispatcher and his wife have been accused of repeatedly raping a seven-year-old girl and taking photographs of her naked.

Tyler Bush-Conn, 28, and his wife Talisha Bush-Conn, 27, were both arrested in South Daytona, Florida, on Tuesday after the girl reported the abuse to her grandmother.

Police say the abuse took place both at the couple's home and at the girl's home where the pair looked after her while her mother was at work. 

It began in 2016 and was only revealed when the girl told her grandmother about it while visiting her in Alabama.

The girl made the confession about being caught looking at pornography on her grandmother's tablet.

Tyler Bush-Conn, 28, and Talisha Bush-Conn, 27, have been charged with child sex abuse for allegedly repeatedly raping a seven-year-old girl 

When asked why she was looking at the explicit images, she told her that Tyler had touched her 'with his hands and with his private parts' and that he sometimes took photographs afterwards.  

She later described to police how Tyler would attack her at her home once her mother had left for work, telling her: 'Let's do our thing' once they were alone.

Tyler would tell her once her mother left for work,"let's do our thing" 

In police documents obtained by DailyMail.com, the girl recalled in graphic detail how he forced her to perform oral sex on him 'until white stuff came out of his penis'. 

He told her to 'chew on it' as he pushed his genitals into her mouth, she said, recalling how she once threw up because of his force. 

The little girl told police she remembered it tasted 'hairy'.  

During other encounters, Tyler anally raped her on other occasions and stuck his finger 'in  her anus', the report claimed. 

The girl said his fingernail was once so sharp it caused her to bleed from her backside. 

Once the abuse was over, he allegedly photographed her vagina, calling it her 'ya ya'. She also said he took photographs of her bare buttocks.

The girl tried to get out of the abuse by pretending she had headaches but claimed he 'stuck his penis in her anyway'. 

Tyler, an army veteran and former cop, tried to silence her by telling her that he would hurt her if she ever told anyone about the abuse. 

The couple have their own children who are not thought to have been abused. Tyler, who told police he 'has a sexual interest in children', carried out some of the attacks in the girl's bedroom after her mother - a friend of his - left for work. His wife took part in at least one attack, police say

Some of the alleged abuse took place in her bedroom with her brother outside. The boy told police he saw Tyler taking her brother in to her bedroom and locking the door. 

The other child remained outside watching Free Willy.  

Once in custody, Tyler told police he has a sexual interest in children and has done ever since he was 'young'. 

Tyler would use his cell phone to take pictures of her "ya ya"..... he told her that if she ever told anyone, he would hurt her 

His wife's interview was redacted from police files. 

Police sources told DailyMail.com on Wednesday that the girl's mother, who is not facing any charges, was 'shocked, upset and surprised' by her allegations. 

The child is known to the couple but they are not related. 

Talisha faces four charges. They are sexual battery on a person under 12, lewd and lascivious exhibition,principal to child abuse and neglect of a child. 

Tyler is charged with sexual battery against a person under 12 and lewd and lascivious exhibition.

Police are still examining his cell phone and intend to bring more charges relating to the pornographic images they believe it contains. 

The couple have been married since 2008 and have children together.
