Responding to a complaint about an "unruly juvenile child" Friday, Bismarck police found two girls locked in the bathroom of a house on the 700 block of S 12th St.

They arrested a woman on charges of child abuse and neglect after finding the girls, ages 12 and 14, crying, with red marks and scratches on their bodies.

The girls claimed they were afraid the woman would hurt them again.

The victims are now in the care of a relative.
