Recardo Wimbush, 33, and Therian Wimbush, 37, who have 10 children, told officials they locked the oldest in the basement because he ran away frequently and molested their other children, according to an incident report released by the Gwinnett County Police Department. "The house, even the room he was in was clean, but the conditions were not acceptable," said police spokesman Corporal Jake Smith. "It's pretty disturbing." The case started with an anonymous call to the county's child protective services department, reporting that a child was being held in a small room with a large jar to use as a makeshift toilet, Smith said. During a hearing to authorize the removal of the child and his nine siblings from the home, "the parents admitted they kept the child locked in the basement room, but said it was because he ran away often and molested the other children," the police incident report said.
