The Police in Sweden have detained a woman in her 70s for allegedly locking up her son.
The victim in his early 40s was found on Sunday in a flat in Haninge after a relative informed the police.
On Tuesday, Stockholm region police spokesman, Ola Osterling told dpa the man is in a hospital receiving treatment.
He was malnourished, had lost his teeth and had large sores on his body.
