LOXLEY, Ala. — South Alabama authorities arrested two people after police said they found two abused children in a truck stop parking lot.
Alex-Vasile Busuioc, 20 and Larisa Suca, 19, both of Romania, are charged with torture / willful abuse of a child, according to Fox 10.
Someone called authorities after spotting the children, naked and covered in feces, in the parking lot of Love’s Truck Stop on Interstate 10, near Highway 59. The children’s parents were found asleep in a van in the same parking lot. The brother and sister were taken to the hospital where they were treated for malnourishment and they are now in the custody of DHR.
Police believe the family was on vacation from their current home in Nashville, Tennessee.
The two suspects were placed in the Baldwin County Jail on $15,000 bonds each.
