This Man Tied Up an Autistic Boy and Shocked Him With Jumper Cables Attached to His Ears

There are people who are truly evil out there, and sadly, we get reminders of this fact every day. One example of that evil is Robert McDowell, who kidnapped a 15-year-old autistic boy, tied him to a trailer hitch, and electrocuted him with jumper cables attached to his ears.

A 58-year-old man has been arrested after police say he attached jumper cables to the ears of a 15-year-old boy to get information about a robbery.

Robert McDowell is accused of approaching the teen – who is autistic – and ‘putting what the victim said was a handgun in the middle of his back during in Wichita, Kansas.

Wichita police Lt. James Espinoza says the suspect took the teen to a garage, tied him to a trailer hitch, then attached jumper cables to his ears and shocked him repeatedly while asking him who had stolen his wallet.

Police say the man’s wallet had been stolen and he believed the teen knew who was responsible.

The suspect eventually released the boy, who ran home and told his father what happened. He was taken to a hospital.

The man faces charges of aggravated battery and kidnapping.

The 15-year-old’s sister, who wanted to remain anonymous told KSN, she was furious with what happened, and now hopes her brother gets the justice he deserves.

She said: ‘That’s just, that’s just wrong. A 15-year-old autistic boy.

Frankly, McDowell should consider himself lucky that the boy’s father called the police instead of going there himself and taking care of the problem. As it is, hopefully justice will be served, and this monster will be locked up for so long that he’ll never be able to hurt another person ever again.
