PARIS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Authorities have arrested a man and woman after finding a 19-year-old autistic man locked in a caged bed in Michigan.
Huron County Sheriff Kelly J. Hanson says a deputy answering a civil dispute call Oct. 20 found him in a bedroom at a home in Paris Township, 90 miles north of Detroit. Investigators say the cage’s door was chained shut.
Hanson says deputies arrested a 65-year-old female and a 66-year-old male resident of the house Monday evening. They’re jailed awaiting arraignment on unlawful imprisonment and vulnerable adult abuse charges.
