SUMMARY: On April 3, 2018, Deputies Dominick and Laidlaw went to the 7100 block of Barton Street to investigate a report of ongoing child abuse. Deputies received information that Priscilla Chavez was abusing her children, and caused serious injuries. Chavez refused to answer the door when deputies arrived to interview her. Fearing the other minor children in the home might be hurt or receiving similar abuse, deputies authored a search warrant. Deputies searched the home and Children and Family Services responded and took custody of the minor children. Priscilla Chavez was taken into custody and booked for suspected child abuse.
