The long arm of the law has caught up with a yet-to-be named Swedish woman in southern Stockholm on suspicion of locking her son inside their apartment for 28 years.

Stockholm police in a statement issued on Tuesday said the Swedish woman’s act, left her son, now 41, undernourished for about three decades.

“The mother is suspected of illegal deprivation of liberty and causing bodily harm,” Stockholm police spokesman, Ola Osterling, said.

He said the man had been “locked up for a very long time” by the Swedish woman in the apartment in a southern Stockholm suburb, but would not comment on reports that he had been held for 28 years.
