A CALIFORNIAN couple accused of sexually abusing their five-year-old son may have performed sexual acts on their dogs too, according to police.
Roy Ling, 35, and Sara Wilson, 32, were arrested last Thursday, nearly five years after US cops began their investigation into reports of sexual abuse of their son.
It is claimed the boy first told officers at the Victorville Police Department that he was sexually abused by his biological parents in August 2013.
The boy was removed from his family and placed in child and family services while an investigation was launched.
Police have not released any details about the alleged abuse.
Ling and Wilson were allegedly “transients in the high desert” and not taken into custody.
Police said the search for the pair continued to March 2014, but authorities failed to locate them.
The child’s parents were eventually found in December 2017 in a Victorville riverbed.
Investigators claim that they may have uncovered details suggesting the couple could have performed sexual acts on their dogs.
Ling and Wilson were arrested and charged with lewd acts with a child.
Their bail was set at £145,000 each.
