A Flint woman was accused of placing her infant children inside a suitcase and leaving them at the curb.

On Wednesday, Flint Police responded to a residence in the 500 block of West Pierson Road to assist Child Protective Services.

When officers were on scene, a 26-year-old woman placed items to the curb "as if it were trash" and fled from the residence at West Pierson Road on foot, according to a release from Flint police.

Police say she was detained after a brief foot chase. Officers returned to the residence and found the woman's two sons, but two children were missing. 

After searching the area, officers located two 11-month-old twin girls inside a suitcase at the curbside. They were transported to the hospital where they were listed in good condition.

The woman remains in custody.
