Woman Kept Children Hidden As Slaves for Six Years

Sook Yeong Park, 42, has been accused of keeping a nine-year-old boy and his 11-year-old sister captive in Queens, New York in 2010 when they arrived from Asia. She allegedly confiscated their passports and made them cut ties with their parents.

In addition, she forced them to give her massages, manicures and pedicures as she beat them. Queens District Attorney Richard Brown described it as a "house of horrors."

Park also forced the girl to clean the house after school and sometimes kept her home from class in order to do chores. Furthermore, the two were forced to work in a Queens supermarket and hand over any earnings.

Park said they owed her $10 an hour because their mother wasn't sending over any money to support them. The girl, now 16, would show up to class covered in injuries and often fall asleep in class.

Assistant principal at Francis Lewis High School soon grew concerned. She finally told teachers what was happening. They notified police. Park was arrested on Saturday and arraigned at Queens Criminal Court on charges of labor trafficking, third-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

The children were finally able to talk to their mother after six years. They are now in the care of a social worker.
