A woman from Stockholm reportedly removed her son (41) from school when he was 12 and kept him locked up ever since.

Swedish police have arrested a woman in her 70s after she allegedly held her 41-year-old son captive for 28 years.

The mother inflicted grievous bodily harm on her son, who was found in a dirty, urine-drenched room without teeth and with sores covering his entire body.

He was unable to move and had a very limited ability to speak.
