Police Find Autistic Teen With Bound Feet Out In Freezing Temperatures

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Philadelphia police say they’re investigating how a 16-year-old boy with autism wound up left out in the cold with his feet bound.

Police were called about 11 a.m. Sunday and found the boy outside in freezing temperatures between two row homes. The boy had bruises on his wrists, possibly from being bound, and his feet still were bound together when he was found.
