STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (WTRF) — Steubenville Police arrested a woman Tuesday night after finding two children locked in a closet.

Police say while at the location, 6th street, a total of six children were without supervision, with several of the juveniles under the age of five years old.

One of the children in the house was on a feeding tube, police say.
