One of those children is thought to be mentally disabled. Cops in Hillview say a mother used plastic ties, that mechanics and police use, to subdue her children.
The call came into Hillview police Saturday; a tale of strange parenting. Police found the 12-year-old girl at a neighbor’s home she fled to after escaping. Police arrested the mother, 31-year-old Barbara Hancock.
Hancock’s arrest was not a complete surprise to her neighbors who say they never saw abuse but often heard yelling and obscenities coming from the house.
Hancock is being held on $50,000 dollars charged with two counts of criminal abuse. The children are under the care of child protective services.
