A 6-year-old boy from Troy, MO has been removed from his home this week after his family allegedly kidnapped, restrained, and threatened him to teach him a lesson about stranger danger. The family say the boy is too nice, and believe they did nothing wrong.

Elizabeth Hupp (grandmother), Rose Brewer (mother), Denise Kroutil (aunt) and family friend Nathan Firoved are all in police custody on various charges of felony kidnapping and abuse and neglect of a child. The AP reports that Firoved lured the boy into his truck on Monday after school:

Authorities said the man told the boy he wouldn’t “see his mommy again,” and that he’d be “nailed to the wall of a shed,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. He showed the boy a handgun in an effort to make him stop crying, authorities said.

The man tied the child’s hands and feet with plastic bags and blindfolded him with a jacket, the sheriff’s office said, before he drove the boy to his Troy home. Authorities said the boy was kept in the basement for a while, before untied and told to go upstairs, where he was lectured about staying away from strangers.

The boy told school officials the next day. He is reportedly staying with other family members.
