Man Allegedly Tortures Teen

Associated Press - September 29, 2015 6:37 am

A 58-year-old man was arrested after a Wichita teenager told police he was abducted at gunpoint and tortured.

The 15-year-old was walking around midnight on Saturday or early Sunday morning when someone came up from behind and put a gun in his back.

Police Lt. James Espinoza says the person led the teen to a garage and tied him to a trailer hitch attached to a van. The boy says the man attached jumper cables to his ears and shocked him repeatedly while asking him who had stolen the man’s wallet.

Espinoza says the suspect eventually released the teen, who went home and told his father what happened.

The suspect was booked Sunday into the Sedgwick County Jail on suspicion of aggravated battery and kidnapping.
