Unattended children found in Peoria apartment Wednesday

PEORIA (HOI) — Peoria police confirm they were called to the Lexington Hill Apartment complex Wednesday for a welfare check.

They say upon arrival, they found six children who'd been left home alone.

Two people have been arrested. They have not yet been identified, and it's unclear what their relationship is to the children.

The situation remains under investigation. Police tell us "the children have been placed elsewhere for their safety."

This story will be updated.
