MILFORD, Conn. (WTIC) -- Two parents are facing charges involving two toddlers, ages 2 and 3.

Someone contacted police after hearing a live stream on Youtube. In the video, a man was heard shouting “I’m going to throw you out the ---- window if you don’t shut the ---- up!”

FOX61 obtained the arrest warrant which said Alessandra Sillo answered the door acknowledging the reason of why officers showed up. She brought the two toddlers downstairs.

Officers noticed the poor conditions the children were living in.

The warrant says officers confronted the other person in the house, Daniel Perez, about the video. Perez denied being in the video but a detective was able to recover it.

More shouting from Perez was heard in the video where he said “Look at the mess you made! Look at this mess! Eat it!”

The warrant states that in the video, while Perez is shouting at the children, there appeared to be striking or slapping sounds.

After denying being involved, the warrant said Perez admitted to police the voice heard in the live stream was his. He claimed he was shouting at one of the children because they spilled donuts on the bed and floor.

In addition, police stated there were old, visible burn marks on one of the children’s collarbone and ear.

DCF also discovered there was no running water in the house. Sillo claimed she had just given the children a bath the night before despite photographic evidence of clutter filling the tub.

The next day, May 9, the two children disappeared. A Silver Alert was issued. The children were eventually found at a hotel in Warwick, Rhode Island.

Sillo is facing charges of risk of injury. Perez is facing charges of risk of injury and threatening in the second degree.

The children are now back in Connecticut in foster care.
