(FOX 11) Police are investigating a reported child abuse case after a YouTube video surfaced on social media showing a woman hitting a crying child in the face with a tablet.

The video, which has received nearly 25,000 views since being uploaded Thursday, shows the woman placing the 3-year-old boy in the backseat of a car in the Kohl's parking lot in Victorville.
