Two San Pablo women were arrested Monday and charged Wednesday with multiple counts of felony child abuse after three children walked into a local bar last week asking for help, San Pablo police Lt. Mark Foisie said today.Faasese Fiu, 56, and Satu Diaz, 34, were arrested for the abuse, which allegedly took place at a home in the 2500 block of 22nd Street, according to Foisie.The abuse was discovered at about 11:45 a.m. on March 26 when three siblings, a 13-year-old girl and two 11-year-old boys, walked into a bar two blocks away from the home and asked for help because of abuse at the home, Foisie said.Police were notified and the children were transported to Doctors Medical Center in San Pablo because they had “injuries and conditions consistent with what they were telling us” about the abuse, Foisie said.The children allegedly were fed only once a week, were forced to stand outside the home all day and late into the night, had to bathe with a garden hose, and would be beaten when they asked to go to the bathroom, Foisie said. He said the children were not allowed to go to school or leave the home.On Monday police arrested Fiu, the children’s grandmother, and Diaz, their aunt, Foisie said.The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office charged both women with multiple counts of child abuse on Wednesday, according to Foisie, who said bail has been set at $450,000 for each woman.The children are currently being taken care of by child protective services, Foisie said.
