A southern New Jersey mother and her boyfriend are accused of chaining her 10-year-old son to a radiator pipe for two weeks.
Authorities say 31-year-old Florence Pollard called police to report her son had run away. But when the child was found a few blocks away, he told police he had been chained to a radiator in his mother’s bedroom by his ankle for two weeks as punishment.
Officers say they found a chain and lock attached to a radiator.
Pollard and Craig are each being held on $50,000 bail. It’s not known if either has retained an attorney.
The boy and his five siblings are in the custody of state child-welfare officials.
