Police have arrested an Arkansas couple for allegedly zip-tying their 4-year-old daughter to her bed as a punishment.
Jennifer Denen and her boyfriend, Clarence Reed, were arrested last week on suspicion of domestic battery, permitting the abuse of a minor, and endangering the welfare of a minor.
Cops had been called to the Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center after staff there determined the girld had been abused.
According to the incident report, she had bruises, a black eye, scars and ligature marks on her wrists.
The young victim is now in state custody.
The couple remain housed in the Garland County jail, both charged with first degree domestic battery, permitting child abuse, and first degree endangering the welfare of a minor.
