CHICAGO – Two men were taken into custody after allegedly beating a 15-year-old boy while holding him captive in a basement.

According to WGN, the teen was handcuffed to a table say and beaten for a week.

The boy’s father, Jose Quilabaqui, and godfather, Carlos Quizhpi, have both been charged with single felony counts of kidnapping.

Authorities say the boy escaped the basement after a construction worker removed screws to the back door where he was being kept.
