Chandler couple arrested after boy locked in bath Posted: Oct 11, 2012 1:05 PM PDT Updated: Oct 11, 2012 1:05 PM PDT CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) - Chandler police say they've arrested a couple on child neglect charges after learning they had kept their severely disabled 8-year-old son locked in a bathroom alone so they could leave for the evening. Detective Seth Tyler said Thursday that a maintenance man found the boy after he had used his clothes to clog the toilet and flood the bath. Police arrested 35-year-old Vu Quang Tran and 34-year-old Siobhan Grogan after they came to the police station to bring the boy clothes and special food. Tyler says the couple has a healthy 5-year-old daughter and told police they regularly left the boy alone so they could lead a normal life. The boy was turned over to CPS. It isn't clear if the couple have a lawyer. Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
