MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Miami Beach man is facing aggravated child abuse charges after police say he tied his 12-year-old son to a pole and left him there while he went shopping for several hours.
Authorities said Monday that 49-year-old Adolfo Guzman used wire bicycle locks to tie the boy to a concrete laundry pole in a common area of their apartment building. Fire rescue personnel cut the locks after passers-by noticed the boy and called police.
The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/YRiaXp ) reports that Guzman told police his son had wandered off without permission previously and that the boy had been warned he would be tied up if it happened again. Police said the boy was not injured.
Guzman was jailed Tuesday on $50,000 bail. Court records do not list an attorney for him.
