Pregnant mom of 14 arrested; 3 kids found in abandoned house

A pregnant woman has been taken into custody after three of her 14 children, showing signs of abuse, were found taking refuge in an abandoned house, police said Friday.

"The kids told us that the suspect regularly punches them with her fists and hits them with a broomstick and belt," police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz said.

Two 9-year-old twin boys and a 6-year-old boy were found Thursday night with scars and bruising to their backs and faces, she said. The abandoned house did not have heat, water or electricity, and the floor was littered with feces and garbage, Schwartz said.

"It's apparent the children have been going there for a while," she said.

Schwartz said the woman, 35, is pregnant and has 14 children, ages 3 to 20. The six oldest children had previously been removed from her custody by child welfare officials, and the remaining children were removed Thursday, authorities said.

6 ways to prevent child abduction;
1. Never leave your child alone in a public place, car, or stroller.
2. Point out a safety house or houses in your neighbourhood, where children can go if they are in troble.
3. Check older friends of your child and all potential babysitters.
4. Do not use clothing or toys with your childs name on it. A child will less likely fear someone who knows his/her name.
5. Always accompany your child to a public restroom.
6. Keep an up-to-date color photograph of your child. a child I.D, and medical and dental history, and have your child fingerprinted. Child Abduction is a growing concern and there are simple precautions that you can take to help safeguard your children.
