Sweden: Mother allegedly kept son locked up at home for almost 30 years

The newspaper "Expressen" reported on Monday evening that a relative had found a 41-year-old man that had been cut off from the outside world since he was twelve years old in a completely neglected flat. The relative told "Expressen" that she had long suspected that the mother had locked up her son. When she heard that the 70-year-old mother of the man was in the hospital, she went to the flat on Sunday evening.

The police did not want to comment on details of the case but confirmed on Tuesday that the woman was arrested. She is under investigation for deprivation of liberty and aggravated assault. The woman denies the accusations.
