This is a disturbing case because of the ages and children involved and how state police believe they were treated. Troopers from both Blair and Huntingdon counties are involved in the investigation that follows reports of mistreatment that involved that two young children, ages four and six, from Entriken, Huntingdon County. Investigators report the young children were endangered during a week long stay in Blair County that started on the Fourth of July.
This case is attracting attention because the investigating trooper's report says " The suspect covered the victim's mouths with duct tape and chained the victims to their beds while they slept."
The police say abuse took place at a residence on Covedale Road. The home is located a short distance outside of Williamsburg. The young children were in the custody of the suspect at the time of the abuse according to the investigating Trooper.
Now members of the Pennsylvania State Police are trying to determine what criminal charges might be appropriate in this case.
State police say the suspect is a female. Possible criminal charges include reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child. Troopers say any case that involves putting children in physical danger is something to which they give a lot of attention.
