A couple in Pleasant Grove are in custody after Dallas PD officers found a 6 year old boy tied up in a shed on their property.
The grandmother of the child told officers he had been locked in the shed as punishment. The grandmother’s boyfriend told officers it “had been happening for at least two weeks because the child was stealing food”, according to KTVT.
The child told officers that the abuse had begun since he “got out of school for this corona thing.”
Esmerelda Lira, 53, and Jose Balderas, 64, are charged with Child Endangerment.
