(AP) A Kansas City woman whose phone call led to the discovery of a frail 17-year-old handcuffed to a metal pole in the basement of the home next door says she saw him handcuffed to a door inside the townhome two weeks ago.
Crystal Anderson says she struggled with whether to contact authorities, but she now feels relieved after the mentally challenged teen was found Monday curled up in a fetal position on a concrete floor.
The 24-year-old moved to the apartment complex in August and became friends with the teen. She says during the first month she lived there, the teen spent most days outside, but after that, she didn't see him until late last month.
Kansas City police say no charges have been filed against the teen's parents.
