Girls Held Captive Inside Home


By KMVT News

Tucson, Arizona (CNN) New video shows the inside of a home where three girls were allegedly locked up in their bedrooms and forced to live in filthy conditions, according to Tucson, Arizona police.

The video from affiliate KVOA shows mattresses with no sheets and lots of security camera signs.

Investigators say the 12 and 13-year-old girls ran to a neighbor's house after they say their stepfather burst into their room with a knife early Tuesday morning.

When police arrived, they found a 17-year-old in the home too.

A police report says the girls told police they hadn't bathed in months and were only fed once a day.

Their mother and stepfather face charges of kidnapping and child abuse.
