Twin teens ask neighbors for help after escaping handcuffs and horrific abuse at home: ‘Can you help us?’

After them, twin teenagers asked a neighbor in Cypress, Texas for help escaped her alleged detention at home and detailed horrific abuse, according to court documents.

Around 5 a.m. Tuesday, the twins were able to uncuff their hands and flee their home to ask for help. They ended up at a neighbor’s house and she let them in.

The neighbor, also unidentified, said she was scared but she let them in because she saw they were shabbily dressed. They wore no shoes and the girl wore a plastic bag for a shirt while the boy wore no shirt at all.

“They said, ‘Can you help us, can you help us?’” the woman recalled. “They were so thin and so frail. They just looked like they had been through a lot.”

She gave them blankets and fed them. She said she was horrified when they started telling her what they had been through.

“The more I asked and realized how serious the situation was, it was just a flood of emotions that washed over me,” she said KHOU. “How a mother could do this to her children and … I feel like my tears are coming from frustration, anger and sadness.”

She took photos of their wounds, which appeared to show injuries from being handcuffed for an extended period of time.


She called the police and the twins were taken to the hospital.

The boy and girl were questioned by law enforcement officers at Texas Children’s Hospital, where they detailed the horrific abuse allegedly by 27-year-old Jova Terrell and 40-year-old Zaikiya Duncan.

According to court documents, they told investigators they were drugged with Benadryl and that the boy suffered seizures after taking too many pills. They said they were not allowed to use the toilet and had to defecate and urinate on themselves. Then they said they were forced to eat and drink their own garbage. They said their mother poured bleach on their genitals and down their throats.

Investigators said they were extremely malnourished and the twins said they were rarely fed and often beaten.

“When you see it in person, it just hits you on another level. It’s so sad, it’s a flood of emotions,” said the woman who took it. “You just don’t understand how little innocent children go through this. ”

When the police went to the house to investigate, the parents had fled with five other children. The couple were later arrested in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, although they only had one child with them at the time. The other four children were found with relatives.

According to Louisiana court documents, Duncan had been arrested ten years earlier and charged with similar child molestation.

The woman said she was angry that Duncan had custody of the children and that the abuse had gone on for so long without intervention. She said she will be following the case to ensure justice is done.

“Give these offenders a life in prison, like murderers, because that’s what it’s going to eventually lead to, and I bet crime would go down.” she told KTRK-TV. “Children would not be abused because they were afraid of going to prison for life.”

Duncan and Terrell were charged with harming a child.

Here’s a local news report on the horrifying story:
