Neighbors Hear Someone Crying For Days, Finally Discover What Horrible Thing Woman Was Doing

A woman in Houston, Texas responded to some shouts from her young neighbor. Upon entering the apartment, she found the little boy was home alone. He'd been chained up in his bedroom.

The neighbor says she heard the screaming and crying coming from the child's window in the apartment complex. She knocked at the door to see if everything was okay, but no one answered the door. She opened the door and found the 7-year-old victim chained up.

The neighbor called 911 and authorities arrived. According to prosecutors, the boy was not left with a cell phone to call for help, or a way of getting out of the apartment. Had there been a fire or robbery, the boy could have been killed.

Nancy Rua, 35, is reportedly the child's 'caretaker,' though her exact relationship to the boy is unclear. She's been arrested and charged with abandonment of a child.

Child Protective Services calls the neighbor who intervened a hero. “For every one case we get, there’s probably at least two that aren’t reported that we don’t know about. We need the community to help us and let us know if there’s a child who may be abused or neglected,” said CPS spokesperson Tiffani Butler.

The child has been placed in foster care for now. An investigation is ongoing.
