(FOX NEWS) - A former Toledo, Ohio firefighter and his son were arraigned Thursday for allegedly kidnapping a 13-year-old relative and keeping her chained up in a basement for as long as a year.
Timothy Ciboro, 53, and Esten Ciboro, 27, were charged with kidnapping and child endangerment and were being held on $500,000 bond apiece. A preliminary hearing was set for May 26.
The girl told investigators she was shackled by the ankle to a support beam in the darkened basement as punishment for wetting her bed. She said she was punished in this way for different periods of time, and as long as a year, according to a court document.
The Toledo Blade reported that the girl managed to free herself with a spare key and escape the Ciboro house Wednesday night after the suspects went jogging in a nearby park. A police report said that a woman found the girl outside a downtown office building, carrying several bags and looking like a runaway.
The teen told the woman that her mother had left her and her two siblings and gone to Las Vegas. She said her father had taken the children in.
