NEW LONDON, Conn. (WTNH) — A 41-year-old New London man is facing a slew of abuse charges after a child was hospitalized for injuries and malnourishment, according to New London police.

Michael Gregor was found on Thursday in East Lyme and arrested without incident, according to police. He is accused of attacking a child in late January.

The child was “living in squalor, inhume conditions and the subject of abuse for a duration of time,” according to an announcement from police.

Police documents state that the child had been inside a room with a deadbolt lock on the outside. The child reportedly told police he was locked inside of the room for hours, with only a layer of plastic on the floor and a blanket. He had been wearing the same clothes and hadn’t showered in weeks.

The child, who had been taken out of school to be homeschooled, told police that he had lied about taking food, and that Gregor had hit him repeatedly on the head, according to police documents. He’d previously been tied up, placed in a wooden box, not allowed to eat or drink, and had also been forced to sleep in a closet for a month. The child said he didn’t know how often he was able to eat, because he lost sense of time being locked in the closet.

Gregor has been charged with first-degree strangulation, second-degree assault, cruelty to persons, risk of injury to a minor, unlawful restraint and reckless endangerment. He is being held on a $750,000 cash surety bond.

Gregor was also arrested in January and charged with second-degree strangulation, second-degree threatening, third-degree assault and disorderly conduct, according to court records. He was released on a $100,000 bond for those charges and is expected in court on April 3.
