A New Jersey woman was arrested Wednesday after police found her 12-year-old foster child chained to a fan in her home, authorities said.
The boy was found by police around 10:10 am in a bedroom at his foster home in Newark, who were doing a health check, according to the authorities.
He was tied to a fan with chains and padlocks, said the Newark Department of Public Safety in a press release on Thursday.
The foster mother, 66-year-old Wanser Brown, is confronted in two cases because of threats to the child’s well-being.
The boy was placed in the care of the New Jersey Department of Child Protection and Permanency.
