Kuban: father chains 10-year-old son and leaves for maternity hospital with wife
The boy ran away and told a saleswoman of a local store of what happened.
A 46-year-old man chained his 10-year-old son and left with his mother who was about to give birth and another four-year-old son to a perinatal clinic in the Krasnodar Region. A criminal case on unlawful deprivation of liberty (section “d” of part 2 of Article 127 CCRF) was initiated against the father. The boy was sent to a rehabilitation center, the regional ICR’s Directorate reported.
In the village of Velikovechny in the evening of July 18, a 10-year-old boy came to a local store and told that his family had left, but before that, his father had chained his neck and secured it with a lock to the leg of a wooden rack in the shed. Employees of the store called the police.
Investigators are looking into the living conditions and upbringing of the child in the family, as well as the men’s involvement in other crimes.
