ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An Albuquerque couple faced a judge Wednesday charged with child abuse.

Police say Ricardo Duarte and Adilene Perez were drunk, walking on Copper near Eubank Tuesday with their three children in tow.

Witnesses called APD saying the children; ages seven months old to two years old, repeatedly fell out of their strollers and hit their heads. At one point they even fell into the busy street.

Witnesses also say the parents would then yank them up by their arms.

APD arrested both Duarte and Perez. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
