Norfolk, Va. – Police have arrested two parents on child neglect charges after discovering several health issues inside of their home.

Police say they went to the couple’s home on Riverside Drive in September after receiving calls about child neglect.

Officers found human and animal waste and a roach infestation inside of the home.

The couple said the home has been in that condition for the past six months.

Police said the home was unsafe for the children and Child Protective Services was notified.
