Saskatchewan RCMP have arrested two adults on allegations they abused five children in Meadow Lake who were in their care.
Mounties say the charges include five counts of forcible confinement and five counts of failure to provide necessaries of life.
The 35-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman are also both charged with assault causing bodily harm and the man with aggravated assault.
RCMP declined to confirm whether the suspects are the parents of the children or if the assault-related charges are linked to the kids.
Police say the children were removed from the home in July 2016 and have not been in the suspects’ care since then.
The suspects are being held in custody pending their next court appearance on Dec. 18 in Meadow Lake.
