SALINAS (CBS SF) — Two women were arrested last week after three children were allegedly found starving and abused with one chained to the floor in a home near the Salinas border, Monterey County sheriff’s officials said Friday.

Two boys and a girl were rescued last Friday afternoon from a house in the first block of Russell Road after authorities were alerted to possible neglect at the home, sheriff’s officials said.

Investigators said they had found the house cluttered and dirty with little food available.

The relationship between the children and the women arrested was not immediately clear.

The children were allegedly malnourished and had signs of physical and emotional abuse. The girl had been chained to the floor, sheriff’s official said.

One of the children was hospitalized and the other two were taken into protective custody by Child Protective Services.

Eraca Craig, 31, and Christian Deanda, 44, who both live at the home, were arrested on several child abuse charges, according to sheriff’s officials.
