Albion - Police say a 10-year-old central New York girl was beaten repeatedly, doused in hot sauce, denied food and dragged behind a vehicle.

Four adults were arrested after the girl escaped from a home in the Oswego County town of Albion on Wednesday and asked a neighbour for help.

The sheriff's office said the abuse began in April; the girl was beaten with fists, feet and an "implement" and spent days working outside without water or bathroom access. Authorities say that once she was forced to run with a heavy backpack, then tied to a car and dragged along.

Deputies say the girl was hospitalised.

Three adults who lived at the home were charged with assault and remanded to jail.

A woman was charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
