Several missing children were rescued from a New Jersey apartment Monday after a boy escaped after allegedly being beaten and forced to strip.

On Monday, Wilkinsburg police arrived at an apartment in Wilkinsburg after a young boy’s brother contacted authorities and said the boy was held against his will. The victim had been “attacked and forced to strip down.”

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazzette, police found the boy at a nearby store after he escaped from the apartment. He said several others inside the apartment beat him up, made him drink unknown fluids, and threw cologne in his face.

Numerous juveniles on the stairway outside of the apartment scattered away as deputies approached.

Tyron Scott, 24, was charged on Tuesday for recklessly endangering another person, endangering the welfare of children, and corruption of minors. Police said Scott’s daughter was among the people who attacked the boy.

Police also learned that the incident was recorded and posted on Facebook, the outlet reports. Scott allegedly watched the attack but did nothing to stop it, CBS Pittsburgh reports.

When the officers entered Scott’s home, they found two underage girls inside. Both gave false names but deputies determined that their families had reported them missing.

The home was empty aside from one mattress, condom wrappers, and rats, police said. The boy told deputies that he didn’t know any of the people who randomly jumped him.

Scott remains behind bars awaiting his court hearing. Check for updates.
