ASH FORK, Ariz., Dec. 30 (UPI) -- Police in Arizona said they arrested two parents after pictures appeared online of their children bound at the wrists and ankles with duct tape.

The Coconino County Sheriff's Office said Frankie Almuina, 20, and Kayla Almuina, 19, of Ash Fork, were arrested after someone saw the pictures of their children, ages 2 and 10 months, on Facebook and reported them to a child abuse hotline, The (Flagstaff) Arizona Daily Sun reported Friday.

Deputies said the pictures depicted the children with their wrists, ankles and mouths bound with duct tape, and one of the pictures depicted a child hung upside down from an exercise machine.

The children, who were not injured, were released into the care of relatives.
