CARRICK (KDKA) — A Carrick couple facing 50 charges in connection to a child abuse case has been arrested.
On Thursday, officials arrested Seth Price, 36, and Trista Price, 36.
The alleged abuse happened at a home in Carrick. Police say it involved two children, who at the time were between the ages of 4 and 7.
It was years ago, according to police, when the abuse happened. The victims, a brother and sister, are now teenagers.
They say it was last year when a report from Children, Youth and Families prompted the investigation.
Through their interviews with the teens, police say they determined the alleged abuse lasted for years.
According to the criminal complaint, both teens accuse Seth Price of choking them and hitting them with multiple objects, such as a frying pan and a 2X4 piece of wood.
In the paperwork, the female victim describes the heinous abuse in detail, saying, “On one occasion, [the man] struck her with his Jeep and left a permanent scar on her forehead.”
The teen boy told police Trista Price allegedly recorded the acts on a cellphone and would watch as the incidents were taking place.”
Much of abuse is simply too graphic to share.
The couple is facing charges of rape of a child, sexual abuse of children, endangering the welfare of children and sexual exploitation of children, among others.
