FLINT TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

Two adults have been charged with abuse after police said a young boy escaped from a Flint home and was found possibly malnourished and with what appeared to be restraints on his arms and feet. 

Kayla Reed, 27, and Daniel Perryman, 39, were both charged and arraigned for child abuse in the 2nd degree and child abuse in the 2nd degree in the presence of another child.

Police were called on Saturday, Sept. 10 to the 3000 block of Stratford in Flint Township for reports of a runaway. 

Investigators said when they arrived the 11-year-old boy who lived with the suspects "appeared malnourished and had items attached to his hands and feet believed to be used to restrain him."

The child told police he escaped from a home in the city. He led them to the 500 block of Weller in Flint where Reed and Perryman were arrested. 

The boy was taken to a local hospital and Child Protective Services were called. Another child in the home was also released into CPS custody.

Both suspects are due back in court on Sept. 20.

"It's stressful to hear about any child you know going through that," said Micole Neal, mother.

Neal is upset to learn about the alleged incident just down the street.

"No child should have to go through that and they should get what they deserve," Neal said.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-422-JAIL.
