A woman has been arrested in the San Antonio area and charged with child abuse after deputies found a 2-year-old child chained to the ground and another on a leash tied to a door in the backyard of her residence, officials said on Friday.

Deputies arrived at the home late on Thursday after receiving complaints from neighbors about children crying in the yard, the Bexar County Sheriff's office said.

A total of eight children were at the residence but sheriff's office spokesman James Keith said there were no adults present when deputies arrived.

Porucha Phillips, 34, was charged with injury to a child by omission with serious bodily injury, the sheriff's office said.

Phillips is the mother of the six children found inside the residence and was taking care of the other two children found bound in the yard. She may have been running an unlicensed day care operation from her home, the office said.
