A 37-year-old San Antonio, Texas, woman was arrested in connection with two toddlers being tied up inside a home.
A 1-year-old little girl was bound by her hands and feet “hogtied” with a black eye and bloody lip. A 2-year-old little boy was in an enclosed playpen “like a cage,” Police Chief William McManus told FOX 29. The discovery was made Sunday after a woman called 911 asking for help checking on her grandchildren in a locked bedroom, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by KSAT 12 News.

“Child endangerment carries a maximum sentence of two years, but I’ll tell you I – what she did to these children is I mean it’s unforgivable,” Chief McManus said as he shook his head. “Two years seems like nothing compared to what she did to these children.”
Another baby is also believed to live in the same home the two children were found, but was located with a different family member at a different household, according to a spokesperson for Child Protective Services.
The two toddlers were taken to the hospital and are now under CPS care.
