Perris, CA: Parents arrested for torture and child endangerment.

Perris, CA: Parents arrested for torture and child endangerment.

According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, early morning on Sunday, January 14th, 2018, a 17 year old juvenile escaped from her residence situated in the 100 Block of Muir Woods Road in Perris, California and managed to call 911 from a cellular device she found inside the house.

** Picture from NBC affiliate KNBC Channel 4: **

The teenager claimed her 12 brothers and sisters were being held captive inside the residence by her parents and further claimed some of her siblings were bound with chains and padlocks.

When officers from the Perris Police Department and deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department met with the juvenile, she appeared to be only 10 years old and slightly emaciated.

After a brief interview with the female, they contacted 57 year old David Allen Turpin and 49 year old Louise Anna Turpin at the residence where the teenager escaped.

Further investigation revealed several children shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings, but the parents were unable to immediately provide a logical reason why their children were restrained in that manner.

Deputies located what they believed to be 12 children inside the house, but were shocked to discover that 7 of them were actually adults, ranging in age from 18 year old to 29 year old.

The victims appeared to be malnourished and very dirty.

Perris Station Detectives were dispatched to the residence for further investigation.

All 13 victims, ranging from the age of 2 year old to 29 year old, were transported to the Perris Station and interviewed.

Both parents were detained and transported to the station for further investigation.

Child Protective Services (C.P.S.) and Adult Protective Services (A.P.S.) arrived to assist in the investigation.

The victims were provided with food and beverages after they claimed to be starving.

The 6 children were eventually transported to the Riverside University Hospital System (R.U.H.S.) for medical examinations and admitted for treatment.

The seven adult children were transported to Corona Regional Medical Center for an examination and admitted for medical treatment.

Both parents were interviewed in this matter and subsequently transported to the Robert Presley Detention Center (R.P.D.C.).

They were booked for violations of California Penal Code Section 206: Torture and Section 273a(A): Child Endangerment.

Their bail was set at $9,000,000.00 each.
