Posted on September 6, 2012


Wisconsin (Associated Press) – FOND DU LAC, Wis. – A Wisconsin homeowner who accused an 18-year-old man of theft tied the teen’s ankles together, hung him upside-down from porch rafters and commanded a pit bull to attack him while the teen’s father stood and watched, a sheriff’s deputy said.

Authorities responded to a home in the Town of Osceola on Friday after a person who arrived at the scene called 911, sheriff’s Lt. Cameron McGee told The Reporter newspaper in Fond du Lac (

“During our investigation we learned that the 58-year-old homeowner had accused the 18-year-old of theft and commanded his pit bull to attack the kid as a means of interrogation,” McGee told the paper. “After more discussion, the man called the dog to attack the kid a second time while the victim’s father watched.”

The homeowner then bound the 18-year-old around the ankles, dragged him outside, hung him upside-down from the porch rafters and commanded the dog to attack again, McGee said. He added that the teen’s father may have participated in the “interrogation.”
