Police in a Sweetwater Florida say an autistic man was kept in “dungeon-like” conditions in his mother’s mobile home.
Police say they received an anonymous call stating that a 30-year-old man was being kept locked up in a home.
The caller reported that the man’s mother left him alone in the house for long periods.
Authorities went by the home and found a small room with a mattress, a “blacked-out window” and an iron door that locked only from the outside.
When the unidentified mother and son returned home, the woman was arrested and the man was transported to a hospital with scratches and bruises.
Police say charges are pending
